How to make folder thumbnails like XP?

Posted: 08-11-2008, 03:12 AM

Hi there, just got a new PC with Vista, and was disappointed at the new
'expandable'-looking folder thumbnails. Is there a way to make the
folder appear flat and with a chosen thumbnail image (like on XP),
rather than the fold-out Vista version? Thanks a lot.

Control Panel/Appearance and Personalization/Folder Options/View (tab)
-Uncheck the option "Always Show Icons"
Does that solve your problem?

XP Folder thumbnails are better than Vista because you can see 4 images relating to the content of a folder. The problem is Vista only has 2 images. The images in Vista are distorted by perspective and are obstructed from view by overlapping. if you managing large amounts of visual data as thumbnails (PDF, JPG, image files, CAD, vector Graffias, Office Documents, etc) in folders, Vista is inferior to XP. I Imagen Vista could be better as the thumbnails have a higher resolution.
un-checking "Always Show Icons" in "Folder Options" docent fix the problem.
i would value a solution.

thank you,
Tim.
