Windows 7: Slide show

Slide show

Why is it even though I've unlocked protected features, and got the Taskbar, I'm unable to create the slide show, as there is no menu to set it up.

Hello wysiwyg.

Perhaps it was inadvertently removed from the version you installed.

Hi wysiwyg,

Have you tried selecting more than one image - the option should be available then?

That's how it works for me anyway

I believe you need to specifically use the BLUE BADGE TOOL and that the "Unlock Protected Features" utility does not enable this. If you used the Blue Badge Tool, my apologies, but the impression I got was that you used the Unlock Protected Features utility.

If I don't have more than one pic selected, the slideshow options are still there, just greyed out.

Hello all....

In my experience if you open the "Slide Show" feature it may de-select many of the pics you have previously selected; you will have to re-select them again. Now that may be because I have over 400 pics (and adding more) in the file. But it would be worthwhile to keep an eye on it if you open the file.

YMMV!...

Finally success with the Slide Show,

It obviously doesn't work in the 64 version, I downloaded the 32bit 7, and after the Blue Badge download it kicked in straight away.
