For picture folders, FastStone Image Viewer ( http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm ) will make them look like this.

I think the fast stone will do the job. I download the info and read it many times. I can make the folder, but still can't figure out how to get the pictures from the old to the new folder. Giving it a rest for the night, will work on it more tomorrow night

What do you mean by "how to get the pictures from the old to the new folder" ?
The Faststone Viewer only shows these folders when inside the program. You can't use it to change the look of 7.
If you want to change the look of 7 itself Windowblinds is what you need, though I don't know if it will do what you want (I haven't used Windowblinds in ages and never on Vista or 7, so I can't advice on that one).

If you want to move files or folders around in Faststone, that is easy. Just select the file and drag it in the treestructure on the left to the place you want it to go.

@whs - thanks for that. This question has come up more often and I never knew Faststone Viewer looked like that <LOL>.
I installed it myself now and it is quite a good addition :)

I thought it would change the look in W-7. Well back to the drawing board I guess.
