See Pictures Before You Open or Inserting

You’ve probably attached a picture to an email, or put it in the body. Maybe you’ve opened it in your imaging software or web authoring program. If so, then you know how annoying it is to be faced with a mess of file names. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what those pictures look like before you insert?

With some programs, like Photoshop, there is a preview window, but what about those that don’t?

Well, with Windows ME through XP you can view them as thumbnails right from the selection window. Just right click a blank area of the window, go to “View” then select “Thumbnails”.


Now you’ll see thumbnails of your pictures.


It’s much easier to select the right picture when you know what it looks like.
