I have just had Ubuntu installed on my laptop, I used to have Windows 7. My question is this: with Windows 7, when I went to my Pictures file, I would see all the pictures in the file, in their folders, very small, with the number of the file underneath, and if I wanted to see one of these pictures in larger format I could click on it. With Ubuntu, when I go to my Pictures file, what I get is a listing of the pictures in the file, with just the file number and the date it was put in the file, but I can't figure out how to actually see the picture that is in that file. How do I actually look at the picture in that file? And ideally, I would like to be able to look at all the pictures at once, very small, as I could with Windows 7, and then pick out the one I wanted to look at larger. Is there a way to do what I want with Ubuntu?
When looking at the Pictures folder,
click the button near the top right corner of the window, marked with green arrow:
Alternatively, press these keys together:
Ctrl + 2
for seeing the small preview of pictures (they are called "thumbnails")
Ctrl + 1
to return to the list view where the filenames are listed under each other.
