Solved My pictures all changed

Specs: Windows 7
I am using Windows 7 and Picasa to handle my photos.

The oddest thing happened to the photos in "My Pictures". They went from being photos to being little square pictures of what looks like tan hills and pine trees. All of them. Can anyone tell me what I have done?

You probably associated your photos with Picasa as the default program for opening them.

To get the photo thumbnails back, open your Pictures folder.
Keep clicking the View icon at top-right until you see thumbnails of your actual photo files.

Thanks for the reply. I don't know what I have done, but there is no "thumbnail" choice there. I can adjust icon size or the other choices are list, details, tiles and content. Can you think of something else for me to try?

I finally stumbled upon the solution. In the control panel under "Folder Options" I clicked on "view". For some reason I had put a check mark in the "Always show icons, never thumbnails" box. I have no idea what I was thinking, but when I removed the check mark, all worked well again. Thanks again.
