windows 7 and vista limit the number of files to select and print or open to 15. Need a work around to increase this limit.

Under windows 7 (and Vista) when selecting more than 15 files in explorer, the "Print" and "Open" selections under the "File" menu disappear.  This is very inconvenient becuase I work with a lot of text files and selecting them 15 at a time is cumbersome and error prone.  I need a work around to bump up this limitation to about 60.  I never had any problems doing it under XP or prior editions of windows.  I have a fast computer with lots or memory but windows 7 won't let me use it - It's like buying a ferrari and the dealer slaps a pad lock on the accelerator and says "...here you go son... it's for your own safety!!!!"  This is very frustrating.

Maybe, it's a limitation of the program that you use to open the files. I am using Windows Live Photo Gallery and even if I select more than 500 files at once, the Open and Print commands can be used.

By the way: the seating capacity of a Ferrari is quite limited. ;-)
