Replaced by the Slide Show toolbar button. Windows Vista offers dramatically better Explorer-based photo slide shows than does either Windows XP or—gasp!— Windows 7.

You must launch Windows Photo Gallery to access this functionality.

Replaced by a new Print toolbar button

You could launch Windows Photo Gallery to access this functionality. Alternatively, you could still right-click a picture and choose Set As Desktop Background from the menu that appears.

Replaced by a new E-mail toolbar button

Replaced by a new Open toolbar button, which offers enhanced functionality thanks to an attached drop-down menu that enables you to choose which application to use to preview the selected image

Missing, but if you select an application from the new menu attached to the Open button, which includes editing functionality (for example, Paint or Windows Photo Gallery), you can edit the picture that way.

Mostly missing. You can use Windows Photo Gallery and its organizational view styles to view your photo collection in a variety of different ways.

Also includes a Slide Show toolbar button, but Windows 7's slide shows are far more basic than those in Windows Vista, and do not include such things as slide show themes or onscreen controls

You must now launch Windows Photo Live Gallery to access this functionality.
