Windows 7: Folder of Animated Gifs 'Animating'?

Folder of Animated Gifs 'Animating'?

I have a folder with a ton of animated gifs and the folder view setting is 'Large Icons'. When I open this folder I desire the icons to display with the animations cycling. Is this possible with some setting or a 3rd party app?

-thnx

thnx - I viewed the YT vid and noted that the last frame looks like it is displaying the folder contents but none of the images are animated. For example, I have a photobucket account and when I display a sub-folder of animated gifs all of the displayed gifs are running. (I don't need additional s/w, I'm ok w/using IE or FF to view individual gifs)

In that topic is the following question from a member :

perhaps this response is worded better.

I was searching elsewhere for my solution and stumbled across this script. It is most awesome and works w/o having to grab an add-on/3rd party. Although not very fancy it makes for a working and dependable 'work-around'. Now, if MS (or one here of super-guru status) would provide the 'clean' solution I know I would just soil myself!


'====================animator.hta=================
<html><head><title>Animator</title></head>
<body><script type="text/vbs">
set fso=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set fldr=fso.GetFolder(".")
for each file in fldr.files
if lcase(right(file.name,4))=".gif" then
document.write "<img src=""" & file.name & """>"
end if
next
</script></body></html>
'=================================================

It would be most desirirable if MS (or one here of super-guru skillsets) would provide the 'clean' solution. If not, this nifty little script is my answer. The only thing lacking with it is a display of each filename. I'll give this topic a week for further dialogue, then mark it as 'Solved' (unless somethings happens sooner).

I found an improvement here:
Animate All GIF files in Windows Explorer? | Windows 7 Forums

Is the alignment can be more improved?
