Hello all I am hoping someone can help with this:

When I use the \listoffigures command in LaTeX, it shows up as follows:
List of Figures

1    Caption of figure 1.  .......................... 1
2    Caption of figure 2.  .......................... 2
But I wanted to actually say Figure 1, Figure 2, ... like this:

List of Figures

Figure 1:    Caption of figure 1.  .......................... 1
Figure 2:    Caption of figure 2.  .......................... 2
thank you

go into the style file and add "Figure" to the counter for the list of figures command
