Windows 7: Not searching .gif files

23 Mar 2011   #1

windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Not searching .gif files

My 'Search' function is not providing results from files it should be that are .Gif format.

This goes for my Windows Live Photo Gallery as well....however, I can open .Gif Files by double clicking on them. Windows Live Photo Gallery also doesn't preview .Gif files when I open up the program and search through the directory.
