    When I open up the properties windows to change my desktop wallpaper
    the images aren't displayed. What I see are the image names and the
    program icon associated with the image extensions. The program icon in
    my case is the Microsoft Image Viewer. Is there some way to fix this
    querky issue so the images are displayed in the properties windows. I
    guess what I want to see arre the image thumb nails, correct?
