Picture viewer in The Grid 2

Picture Viewer is a small utility included with The Grid 2 to view photographs in either My Pictures or the Shared Pictures folders. The program works with XP, Vista and Windows 7.
It is primarily intended for use with the computer control or program control workspace in Grid 2, but, if required, may be used as a stand alone program.

How to Use

We would recommend that you download a ready-made grid bundle that makes use of Picture Viewer. You can download it here.
Alternatively, you can have a go at making your own grid. See how it is done in our ready-made grid bundle.

  • On an empty cell, add a “Run program” command.
  • Type “PictureViewer.exe” underneath “Launch a program”.


  • Typing “PictureViewer.exe folder” will display any pictures in a subfolder named “folder”. Just substitute “folder” for whatever your subfolder is called.
  • If you wish to show the pictures in your Shared Pictures folder (default shows My Pictures), type “PictureViewer.exe /shared”.
