Rick, I think he may be referring to right-click then "Preview" in XP would
bring up Windows Picture & Fax Viewer; animated gifs would animate.
In Vista, the "new" Windows Photo Gallery just shows the static gif,
It appears one cannot get rid of Windows Photo Gallery crap and put Picture
& Fax Viewer on Vista.
A bummer for me, because I create animated gifs for presentations - I like
to just right-click/Preview to check alignment etc.
Now I have to open them in Irfanview or other non-MS software. It's nuts,
What's Bill got against animated gif?
