Windows Picture & Fax Viewer gone!!!
In XP, with an animated gif, one can right-click | Preview and the gif
displays and animates.

In Vista, the "new" Windows Photo Gallery just shows the static gif
non-animating (and also demonstrates other head-shakingly idiotic nonsense).

How does one get rid of that Windows Photo Gallery crap and put Picture &
Fax viewer on Vista?????

Thanks

Paddy

I really doubt you can, as it was never a standalone program. If you really
want to see animated gifs, you can always drag them onto IE, or even
associate IE with .gif files.

MS has decided that animated GIFs are antiquated.

Download IrfanView and use it to display your GIFs.

Thanks Dave. I have IrfanView, but I like the fast-opening-display by
Preview with Picture & Fax Viewer. I make animated gifs for training
presentations, and like a quick check.

In Redmond, they don't listen to our screams.
