Hello there :)

I am currently running Vista Business 64 on my home computer. I do alot of photography, and use Windows Photo Gallery to preview / browse all of my pictures. For my needs, Windows Photo Gallery is perfect EXCEPT for the Slide Show button.

I'm constantly finding that I accidentally click the slide show button, and because I'm dealing with RAW files (around 16-20 megs) the slide show locks my computer up for about 5 minutes. Ending the process takes just as long to recover.

Does anyone know of a way to disable the functionality of this button? I'm experiences with working within the registry, but don't feel confident enough to hunt down and alter existing entries on my own. Has anyone got a reg mod I could use for this?

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated :)
Thank you.

If you are clicking the previous/next buttons with the mouse, try using
the left/right arrows on the keyboard instead.
