When you install or delete Microsoft products, the thumbnail imagesin the ClipArt Gallery may not accurately represent the picture imageson your hard drive.

For example, the ClipArt Gallery may display more than one copy of thesame graphic.
This behavior can occur if you move graphic files, attempt multipleinstallations, and so on.
You can refresh the thumbnail display images in ClipArt Gallery bydoing the following:

  2. With the right mouse button, click any thumbnail image.
  3. Click Update Clip Previews on the Context menu.
  4. Click the Update All button.

Microsoft ClipArt Gallery 1.0 and 1.1

  1. Start ClipArt Gallery.
  2. Click the Options button.
  3. Click the Refresh button.
  4. You will be prompted for a drive from which to search for graphic files. Insert a blank, formatted disk in either drive A or B and select the corresponding drive letter from the choices of drives to search. Click OK.
  5. When you receive the following message:
    We do not recommend that you add clipart from this drive to the ClipArt Gallery because you will always need to have this disk available to put this clipart into your document. Do you want to add it anyway?
    click Add.
When you select a drive containing no graphic files, ClipArt Galleryrefreshes the thumbnail images, removes duplicates and thumbnails ofgraphics that have been moved or deleted, and updates the ClipArtGallery.
