I created a slide show w/ Windows Media Center today and all went well. How do I find the file for the slide show and how do I share it, say, with a friend in another state?? My OS is Win 7 Home Premium.Thank you, Sparky

1. search for the name of the slideshow. Maybe it is in Pictures
2. You can upload the file to many sites and give your friends the link - Skydrive and Dropbox are popular.

I found the file and it's a .wpl file. I copied it and pasted it in my Google Drive. I tried to open it on my other laptop and it doesn't open. It's my understanding that .wpl files do not contain any audio or video data at all. A *.wpl playlist contains only list of songs or other media files and paths to them. Those paths are only accurate on the original computer. So I still don't know how to send this slide show over the internet that it will play on another computer.

See whether Format Factory will convert it to a more suitable format - e.g. MP4. http://www.pcfreetime.com/

Else redo your picture show with either PowerPoint or Windows Live Movie Maker. In those you have a lot of options for even the fanciest picture show. Here is one I once made in PowerPoint and then recorded as a video: https://vimeo.com/4085938
