Q: No Thumbnail View Pictures Help.

Hi everyone,

I need some help getting my thumbnails view back in My Pictures folder. When I open My pictures folder all I get is the thumbnail view from the program ACDsee and it's related icon. I can only view thumbnails when I open that program or Adobe CS-2 & Adobe Bridge or any other program but not through windows anymore. Not that it's a big deal but it helps being able to view thumbnails when I need to find or open a picture. I did a Start ( RUN ) with the following information: regsvr32 shmedia.dll & regsvr32 / shimgvw.dll for a movie related issue I was having and after that I can't recall being able to view thumbnails anymore. Can anyone please forward me any information on how to fix the issue.

My thanks to all in advance

I downloaded many large full sized picture files, I used the included default Microsoft Picture Viewer to view them and they filled the screen,
I saved them as JPEG, and the huge files are now Only small files /
thumbnails when I go to view them.

Is there a way to turn ON and mainly - Turn off a thumbnail View / Save

I want the big full file, not just a thumbnail / small picture
the downloads were Megabytes - the resulting saves are now tiny kb's

Are my original large files gone ?? - that was a lot of downloading

I have a folder with about 20 images and 20 folders (with avi's, images, and txt files inside).

When I initially check the disk size (while the folder is being viewed in Icons View), the disk size reads 28,415,404,695 bytes.

When I change it to Thumbnail View, the disk size increases to 28,415,444,631 bytes.

I know it's only a 39,936 byte difference but I'm just wondering where this is coming from? When I change it back to Icons View, it still reads 28,415,444,631 bytes. How do you get it back to the original 28,415,404,695 bytes?

Hi, i have a few (20) picture files in 'My Pictures' when i display them as Thumbnails view, the wrong picture is displayed in the Thumbnail. So you can look at the thumbnails and see a preview of what the image is, BUT when you click and open it, it is a different picture.
I hope i have explained this problem clearly. Just ask if you need to know more.

A:My Pictures, Thumbnail problem

See if you understand what this response is telling you. It will require you to open up your registry editor (type regedit at the run box in Start -> Run).

If you are unsure about registry editing (deleting stuff may make your computer unusable) do some research on Registry editing before taking this on.

I'm trying to shop on Amazon.com this morning and instead of the picture on the product pages, I'm running into what I call little thumbnail icons (see screenshots). It appears this way both on the search page and on the product page. However, sometimes I can click on the item on the search page and when it takes me to the product page, the picture of the actual product will show up, while the additional views still appear as this icon.

I run into this more and more frequently on Facebook also.

Sometimes this will persist for a long time.

I left this post for a bit just to see what would happen. I went back on Amazon.com and now it would appear all pictures are coming through.

But what is causing this and is there anything I can do to correct it?

When inserting animations in e-mails, when I go to "My Pictures" folder, where I keep my animations, it comes up with the picture numbers rather than the "Thumbnail" representations. So I then have to click on the "Views" icon and then on "Thumbnails". And that is fine, until the next time.

What I am trying to develop is how I can get the "Thumbnails" to come up every time in lieu of the picture numbers. I'm sure there is a way. And I am sure someone in this forum knows that way.

It would be appreciated if I could be enlightened.

Hi all..

As newbie on this forum I have a question I hope you can help me with.
I would like to setup thumbnail view in Windows XP style.

Problem is following: I have a 4 years old son who likes to see movies from my NAS server. My Windows 7 is connected to my TV - I browse to children movie on my NAS and my son can see on folder picture what movie he would like to see. In windows XP there is no problem - picture is clear. In Windows 7 folder icon is half opened and picture only half visible. My son is not satisfied - he is not able to see the whole picture

Is the any way to customize folder view in order to see whole picture?

I hope I made my self understandable - otherwise - I will explain again

Best regards from Denmark

I am having a HP Laptop with Windows XP SP2 installed on it.
It contains folders containing MPEG files. By Choosing the Thumbnail View I can see 4 thumbnails in the folder view as well as individual thumbnails in the fileview of the folders. This WAS working fine.
The problem now is whenever I copy a MPEG file to another folder in the same location I cannot view the thumbnails in the folder view nor can I see the thumbnail in the file view. The Camera that I use is the Sony Handycam. I can see the thumbnails thru the Picture Viewer software given by Sony. But I cannot see the thumbnails thru Windows Explorer.

Please remember that the old files (copied from the same camera) thumbnails can be seen. This is happening for new files only.

I have checked for settings on the camera software but cannot I dont see any options for this.

A:thumbnail view

arungoogol, If you have the view set to show Thumbnails do the following:
Open the folder to view the thumbnails. Hold the Shift key down and click on the View button and select Details.
Remove your finger from the Shift key. You should now see the file names.
Hold the Shift key down and click on the View button and select Thumbnails.
You should now see the thumbnails with the file names under them.

To turn off filenames, hold down the Shift key when you click to open a folder in Windows Explorer or when you switch into thumbnail view. This will turn of the file names, giving more space for the thumbnails. Doing it again turns them back on.

I had problems with pictures not getting displayed at all. I could only see blank screen and ocassional picture. This problem was solved by reducing the hardware accelaration. This can be done by display properties->settings->troubleshoot->hardware acceleration. Try lowering it to halfway or less and see if this solves the problem. It solved my problem.

I have searched your data base and found some things on this but the one solution listed that I did find had instructions different then windows that opened up as I tried executing it.

My problem is that all my thumbnails that would normally show as the actual picture in any file or folder including ones saved to the desktop have all been replaced with a windows generic mountain and sun cartoon. The only way I can see what any individual picture file is ...is to physically click on it and open it up in a viewer. This is a royal pain to try to find any individual picture to say the least.

Attempts at trying to restore my computer to an earlier date to solve this issue are not completed ...I get a error message saying restore could not be completed...try choosing a different restore date.........I have tried them all.....same error message

Hi.. i like many others have the problem of all thumbnails being spontaneously deleted every other day or so , and all the 250mb worth of thumbnails being slowly generated again only to be deleted..which is a major inconvenience since my processor is comparatively slow and videos take time for thumbnails to be generated.

i found that the deny permission for the explorer folder where the thumbnails are stored does indeed work, however i noticed that while i have this workaround enabled, windows aero starts lagging (the scrolling of explorer pages, even firefox pages, and any graphical effects start occurring in short jerky steps) which i again hate. as soon as i removed those deny permissions (and the thumbnails spontaneously deleted) i haven't encountered that aero lag...so its not my graphics card or driver.

i have currently disabled all thumbnail generation, folder browsing is behaving very fast but it just doesn't look good for pictures...for the videos its livable with.

so any way i could limit thumbnail generation to pictures files only? i have searched around and haven't found anything on this.

Hello again...
I have searched TSG for an answer to my problem and most of the threads are expired.
Here's my problem. When I open up my pictures there is no thumbnail view to choose from in right click menu, or view settings for the folders. I would like to go to my pictures and see what the pictures are in the preview side but it only shows icons. The choices are Very Large Icons down to content. The only ones that show a preview, I just discovered as I was writing this post, are the .jpg files. Now what? To see my picture is I then have to double click and then the picture opens in which ever program I have set for it to open in. To find a picture I have to open them all up. Do I have to tag all those pictures in order to tell what they are? I'm so sick of this I don't even look for my pictures on this laptop. I have to copy them to a little drive and transfer them to my desktop XP.
What's with Win 7?
Please, I would be so grateful if there was a solution.
THANKS in Advance. Deana

A:Solved: No Thumbnail view anywhere

Select large icon.
Click on tools at the top left (if you can't see the menu bar above 'organize' press f10). Select folder options from the drop down menu. Click on the View tab (middle tab between general and search). Make sure the first option in the list is un-checked (always show icons never thumbnails). Hit apply and ok.

Hopefully that should sort it out, post back and let us know

Hey all, im new to this forum and basically iv just been pokin around the net trying to find an answer to my problem, but with no luck, i find myself here - so hey, im NathaN - right introZ over, heres my problem:

For as long as i can remember i have been archiving music on my hard-drive. A particular preference i have is to set the albums out in thumbnail view with a .jpg of the front cover in each sub-folder to view as the main picture (eliminating the multi-picture low-quality album art XP tends to autoselect) just by simply repeating [right-click] -> properties -> customize -> choose picture.

This is a very long winded and time consuming process which i once brought myself to do, but alas, as my music folder is on my external HDD and a difinitive drive letter had not yet been set, 1 reboot and 1 vintage ipod later and my HDD assigned a new letter, and so my settings reverted back to the original thumbnail view. After assigning my external to [Z] this is no longer an issue, but; after reading this long winded introduction, my question is... can i edit the .ini file or use some 'get' commands in visual basic/create a .bat file etc to automatically select the first .jpg image in each folder when set to thumbnail view (and how do i this). This would save a good few days of manual changes.

If I upload a photo from My Documents in my account, the upload dialog box opens with a thumbnail view. However, if I upload a photo from My Documents in my wife's account or if I upload from our external HD, the dialog always opens in a list view. The view setting must be changed to thumbnail.

Hello Guys!

Lately I haven't been able to view the thumbnails of my videos in my folders. Most of the videos are MPEGs. It co-insided with putting Nero Buring ROM on, which hijacked all my video files to open with its' own video player. I then selected all the files and clicked the 'Open With' button and selected Windows Media Player and 'Always use this program to open this kind of file'.

Since installing Nero, I haven't had my thumbnail previews, just the Windows Media Player icon. It's really annoying, as I don't know what file is what!

Even uninstalling Nero didn't make any difference, so was it a coincidence?

What do you think maybe the problem?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Then I started having problems with the computer so I copied the pictures to an external hard drive and had the computer reformatted. Once it was up and running, I copied the pictures back to the hard drive and even though they are in the same folder, same size, some will open up large and can be used as a wall paper and some only open in a thumbnail size and if I enlarge it, it gets blurry. Anyone know How I can change the attributes back so when I double click on it, it opens full screen like some of the others? P.S.

I've developed a weird problem that maybe someone can help me solve: about a week ago, all of a sudden, when I went into Windows Explorer and then clicked on My Documents and then Thumbnail view. The text describing the folders and documents was missing! The same thing happened in My Pictures. However, both of these folders will display the titles in any other view (list, icon, etc). I have customized these files with photos from their contents for thumbnail view, but I did that many months ago, and I still had the title text then. My Documents and My Pictures are the only two folders that do this. All others in thumbnail show the title text. I haven't been able to figure out how to fix this. If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Pekstrom

Hi All,
Does anyone know if it is possible to adjust the space between the thumbnails of photos while using the thumbnails view in Windows XP folders?

The reason I am asking is that I would like to be able to see more thumbnails at once and XP seems to waste alot of space between the thumbnails unlike this example here instead of what I usually see here . Increasing screen resolution is not an option as it is already suited to what my eyes can handle.

I know it is possible to change the size of the thumbnails themselves using TweakUI but that is not what I am after. I am assuming that a registry tweak would be necessary but I don't know where to look.

PS: I need an answer within 5 minutes.
