Windows photo viewer?

How do I get this to show pictures open instead of the standard icon that I have to open to see what the picture is?
Thanks,
Bill

Thanks. That did the trick. I guess I had chosen show icons, not thumbnails at some point. Why, I don't remember, but now I got my picture view back when opening my pictures.
