I hoped that helped! Keep asking questions!!! That is the best way to learn!!! Are you still having problems making a page?
A couple of things on Michaela's tip:
(1) In order to "see" the picture on the folder, you have to have a "VIEW" of the folders that will allow you to see it. For instance, if you have the VIEW set to "Details", you won't see the picture. If you have the VIEW set to something like LARGE ICONS, the folders will display with the picture.
(2) Depending on your operating system, the folder will behave slightly differently as far as how the picture displays. WINDOWS7 displays with a folder that looks like it is half open, and open just enough to see the picture you set to display. XP actually shows the flat folder, like it would appear if it were laying on a desk, with the picture on the very front (I actually like this better, but I'm running WINDOWS7 on the PC I use to digiscrap).
(3) To set this up, you right-click the folder that has your kit in it and select PROPERTIES from the menu that displays - my PROPERTIES is the last menu item in the list. A pop up window will display, and it will have several tabs across the top. Select the last tab, labeled, CUSTOMIZE. About halfway down that tab there is square labled FOLDER PICTURES ... click the CHOOSE FILE button and navigate to the folder that typically comes with the kit and select it and click the APPLY button at the bottom of the pop up window ... and you're done!
** Now, as long as you have your folders set to view as something like "LARGE ICONS" they will display with the selected picture on them.
I'll probably tackle this as I use a kit. It would be too much right now to try to get caught up. I was about to type that I have too many kits ... but we all know we NEVER have too many kits! LOL!
Thanks for the tip, Michaela! It'll help when I'm hunting for something specific rather than relying on my memory.
