Okay, here's the deal.

In XP on my laptop when I go to the folder that has some of my books in it in .pdf format, if I set the 'VIEW' to SMALL ICONS, MEDIUM ICONS, LARGE ICONS I can see what the cover of the book looks like. This makes it so that I don't always have to READ the title of the book to grab the one I need. However, I can't put all my books on my laptop and do most of my work on my desktop.

Here's the rub ... my desktop is running VISTA and when I go to any folder that has books in it in .pdf format, no matter which 'VIEW' I choose, all I see is the Adobe PDF logo.

Can someone help me fix this so that I can see the 'book covers'? PLEASE?

If you need pictures of what I'm talking about, please ask and I'll put them up for you to see.

Thanks

Hey Dog;
Try going to control panel. In internet options try writting something like google.com, save and then open the browser.
If not, try opening the browser with all tke BHO's (Browser Helper Objects)turned off. this usually will reset the browser.

I will try this, but it doesn't make sense to me .... why would internet options have something to do with Windows Explorer?

I'll let you know though.

I thank Eddieram36 for answering so fast, but it didn't help ....


Doesn't ANYONE out there know how to fix this problem? It's not going to kill me if I don't get it done, but it sure would make a bit of my work easier.

Thanks either way though!
