If you really miss Filmstrip view, as I do, you can check out a similar if more unwieldy folder view in Windows 7 to see if it will meet your needs. It's called the Preview pane and you enable it by clicking the new Show the Preview pane toolbar button in the current window, as shown in Figure 12-13. The Preview pane occupies the right side of the window and shows an automatic preview of the currently selected file, much like the old Filmstrip view.

The problem with the Preview pane is that it's global. That is, once you enable this view, it will be applied to all subsequently opened Explorer windows.

Figure 12-13: Enabling the Preview pane in folders that contain images gives you an effect similar to that of the old Filmstrip view.
