Remember in w2k if you highlighted a movie or sound file in a folder you got
the option on the left to play it . Is there any way to get that back in XP
? I know you can get the preview pic of a movie but any way to get it
playing ?

cheers

Unforunately, it doesn't appear so. But since you've already highlighted it, why not just click it again?

Cheers for the reply, wonder why they removed this feature ??

>>why not just click it again?

Yeah I know but the preview way was just so much quicker if you wanted to
see what a vid/ song was quickly without opening MP or the likes.

thanks anyhow
