Open Windows Explorer or My Computer. Clck Tools on the menu and select Folder Options. View tab. Scroll down the list of boxes to check whether the box for "Remember each folder's view settings" is ticked. If not, tick it and click OK.
Open the folder for which you want to enable thumbnails view. If thumbnails are not already shown, click View on the menu, and select thumbnails. The change applies only to that folder.
Your jpegs are currently associated with Microsoft Paint. If you're happy with that, that's fine. If you want some other application to open them by default, in Explorer, click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab. Scroll down the list of registered file types to jpg and so on, highlight it. In the "Opens with" section below, click Change, and select another application (e.g. Internet Explorer). Click OK. The change will apply to all files on your computer with that file extension.
tried your idea but still will not work. when I now open windows explorer I get the large preview window in my pictures, blank icons in the main window, when I click on individual icons the image is shown in the large preview window, but I want to see all the icon pictures so I can select the right one.
