This solution uses the tocloft package.The way that your list of tables and list of figures appear are defined by the commands \cftfigfont and \cfttabfont. Write the following code in your preamble.


\renewcommand{\cftfigfont}{Figure }
\renewcommand{\cfttabfont}{Table }

Thnx I tried that after u told me and here is the error message... \newcounter{lofdepth} \setcounter{lofdepth}{1} do u need to edit something else? – Sur Aug 31 '12 at 20:31
The problem is that both packages define the counters lofdepth and lotdepth. To prevent the error, simply load tocloft with the subfigure option; i.e., load the packages like this: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[subfigure]{tocloft} \usepackage{subfigure} \begin{document} test \end{document} this worked ...thnx – Sur Aug 31 '12 at 20:55
