Thanks Beta for your response.
I had tried that but all it gives is a 'slide show'. What I am looking for is the ability to view (it came up as an option 'Film Strip' under 'View' similar to Icon, Details etc on XP) in film strip format. I liked the way the picture enlarged as the curser passed over it making selection easier rather than having to manually increase the size. I have a feeling it may have become an option via another program.
Hope this is clear.
