I've recently upgraded from XP Pro to Windows7 Pro - In XP Pro (and previous OS versions) you could move Thumbnails around in a window and they would snap/shuffle up/re-order themselves and be viewable as a slide show - it was unbelievably useful - I used it EVERY day, Windows 7 doesn't do this? Is there some setting I can change or is it just not there anymore? I use it for organising photo libraries for archiving - I haven't found any other way of doing this that suits my work. Does anyone know a way to get this feature back? Thanks

Change the "view" option to view as thumbnail, and it should be usable again.

thanks - but there is no thumbnail option in Windows 7 and I have tried every option to be able to make this work. –  user34066 Apr 16 '10 at 8:44
in answer to my own question - having spoken directly to Microsoft - both of these features have been removed! –  user34066 Apr 16 '10 at 11:27
wait, so is this in windows explorer or what? –  50an6xy06r6n Apr 19 '10 at 17:45
