If the loading message appears please be patient. When the process is complete you can click on the toolbar to control the applet. The minimized toolbar can be restored during the show by clicking on the image area. The dropdown list can be used to access the images by title, except with IE 4.x.. While the 5.x version of Microsoft's IE browser will allow you to use the toolbar buttons, it is very quirky and you may need to close and reopen the browser to operate the show properly.
