    Vista screen saver wont show photo titles there doesnt appear to be any options to include titles anywhere ...anyone have an idea how to get photo titles to show on a slideshow?

    XP shows photo titles as slide show runs

    OS Vista Home Premium 64 bit

    If I remember correctly, the XP screensaver you are referring to doesn't do that (I don't have an XP machine up and running to verify). And for that matter, I don't think the Vista one works any differently (odds are, I'm seeing the same thing as you in my 32bit version of Home Premium, and the closest I see in the settings for that screensaver are 'tagging' options, which I'm pretty sure won't do what you're asking for ;)).

    Are you sure you're not mistaking it for a third party screensaver perhaps? I know Google's Photo Screensaver lists details like that.

    No, the OP is correct in that the XP My Pics Slideshow screensaver has the show filenames tickbox. Other posters have remarked that is an absent setting in Vista and I have to concur since I can't find it either. The workaround is to make no mistake and use a third party photo screensaver manager that does have the option.
