Playing Photo Slide Shows from the Shell

One last thing you can do from the shell is display very simple photo slide shows via the Slide Show toolbar button that you'll see in the Pictures Library and other photo-containing folders. These slide shows are pretty basic and cannot be configured in any meaningful way. There's no navigational UI, so to access the few configurable options— Play/Pause, Next, Back, Shuffle, Loop, and slide show speed (see Figure 12-14)—you have to right-click. You can also use the arrow keys as Back and Forward buttons, or tap Esc to exit at any time.

Figure 12-14: Windows 7 offers very basic picture slide show functionality right from Windows Explorer.
