Sometimes in Windows Vista I have a folder option to view files as a slideshow on the menu bar, Sometimes I do not have that option. I am speaking of the same folder. Under properties/customization I have selected to have them viewed as pictures and videos . I would like to have that option all the time.

When I try to change it to pictures and videos and press apply it doesn't work. When I select a file there is no slide show option

What did not work? Did it not add it to the Context Menu or ????

Try Holding down the Shift key when you right click, see if gives you more choices.

Edit: I tried it and all I get when I click on it is Unspecified Error. I'll check with Brink (the guy who wrote it) and see what he says. I'll ask him to stop by here as well.
