    File Explore.. viewing picture icon


    I used to be able to view a jpg or jpeg file in any folder it was in when I selected that folder.. It was very useful when I wanted to include it in a email or text message and I did not have to memorize the file name instead of looking at the picture and choosing it.. why does this not work anymore.. All I get is the same icon and one hase to click on it then it opens a program to view the picture.. Kinda a lot to do to just send a picture to a friend of post it on face book or whatever..

    :)
