Thumbnails Photographs.

  ribo 10:51 18 Aug 2008

Can anyone help me please. This is not such a great problem,but very annoying.

Everytime I want to look at my Photographs they appear in the folder as Icons. I want these to appear as thumbnails. I have looked, but do not seem to find anyway that I can change this so that it is permanent.
I appreciate your help. Thanks J

I changed mine by clicking on "View" and then from the dropdown clicked on thumbnails.

Hope this works for you.

Thanks. Yes this works, but the next time I open the folder, they are Icons again. I would like the view to be thumbnails without having to change it every time. J

If you are happy to edit the registry try this link click here which explains how to increase the number of folders Windows will remember the settings for. I'm using XP Pro, and it's always worked for me.

If you haven't already done so, change them to thumbnails and then close the window by using File>Close instead of using the cross in the top right hand corner.

I've just tried it and it works for me.

Thank you very much for your help. That does it and next time, even if you click on the X to close,they still open in Thumbnails next time.Thanks again.
southhead Thank you. I am not very happy editing the registry. The suggestion given by exdragon works. I still appreciate your help. J

Glad it worked! In general, if you use the File>Close option, you'll keep the settings - for example, if you resize a window and close down that way, it'll be the same size when you open up again.
