How do I view image files in Windows Explorer?

Image files can be viewed in Windows Explorer by double clicking on them. To view an image file, first locate your file in the Windows Explorer window. Once you’ve found it, simply double click on the image and it will open in the associated program. In most cases this is Windows’ Photo Viewer and Paint programs but if you’ve installed a program such as Adobe Photoshop or CorelPaint they may open the image in one of those programs.

If you are viewing the image directly in Windows Explorer you can move through the images by either using the arrow key or the mouse. The right arrow will take you to the next image in the folder and the left arrow will take you back to the previous one. Alternatively you can use the mouse to click on the next or previous thumbnail image in order to view them.

Unfortunately, Windows Explorer isn’t capable of displaying all image formats, so you may see some files as blank icons or placeholders. To view these images, you may need to download a third-party program that supports this particular image format.

You can also easily manipulate and resize images without leaving Windows Explorer. To do this, click on the file and select the ‘Resize Pictures’ option from the drop-down menu. You can then choose whether to resize it by percentage or by width or height and also set a border colour or background.

In addition to viewing image files in Windows Explorer, you can also create slideshows of your photos. To do this, select the images you want to include in the slideshow and then select ‘Create Slideshow’ from the drop-down menu. Here you have the option of setting a duration for each image and whether to loop the slideshow or not. Once you’ve finished your slideshow, click ‘Create’ to save it as a video file.

Windows Explorer also offers several other detailed options for viewing and editing images. For example, you can rotate, flip, and crop images as well as add text and shapes. You can also adjust various image settings, such as brightness, contrast, hue, and saturation.

Overall, Windows Explorer is an easy and convenient way to view, edit, and share image files with others, making it an invaluable tool for anyone who works with images on a regular basis.
