    Query re pictures


    I have a query on how to make my pictures shown in order like they do in my 7 machines.

    When I open the SD card and pick a picture it goes straight to paint and I have to close that picture before going to another shot. In 7 one used to be able to hit the > button and the next picture would come up. That is how I want this machine to work is there a way of doing it??

    One more little query is when I go to manage attachments the menu shows with pictures just out of view and it ends up with me having to scroll down to pictures to then go in and find a picture.

    This also happens with documents too and it is so time consuming and irritating is there a fix for this??

    Right click on one of the pictures and choose "Open with" "Choose default program...." and select Windows Photo Viewer.

    Did you try adjusting the view?

    Hello Mr Sardonicus ok I have tried that fix and it works ok but no I haven't done anything in view as it only has options to zoom and full size etc.
    The first thing I tried does what I want to do - thanks again

    The other stuff I will try and find a fix for as right now what you have advised me is the ducks feet
