If you’d like to see your pictures in Windows Explorer in a Filmstrip format, you may need to set it up initially. If you are browsing a folder in Windows containing mostly images and this feature is not available, you may need to customize the current folder’s view.
1. Select “View” – “Customize This Folder”.
2. The folder properties multi-tabbed dialog box will appear. Underneath “Use this folder type as a template” choose “Pictures” or “Photo Album” as desired.
3. Click “OK” to close the dialog box.
The “View” – “Filmstrip” option should now be available.
