Extra Large Icons

  Spr 19:09 05 Dec 2008

I am using Vista & I have a lot of Jpg Images which I want to put in to a Folder within Folder. How can I using View Extra Large Icons make all the Folders the same without doing it Folder by Folder?

Thank you

I don't use Vista - but in XP you can make all folders behave in the same way by going to Control Panel>Folder Options>View>Apply to all folders ....... perhaps similar in Vista?

Go to control panel, type "icons" in search top right. New page"change all icon sizes, click, should give you what you want

Not on Vista at the moment but see what right clicking the desktop will give you.

I think that what you are suggesting only changes the desktop icons.


Open your main folder - choose extra large icons - click on organize, then click on Folder and Search Options and on the view tab click on "apply to folders".

Found by clicking on the help link on the Folder and Search Options tab.
