Disk Size is different between Icons View and Thumbnail View in Windows Explorer

Q: Disk Size is different between Icons View and Thumbnail View in Windows Explorer

Hi,

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?

Thanks

Can't see Icons in "Thumbnail" view in Windows Explorer.

I have messed around changing some of my standard icons and have changed some associations and know am unable to view the picture of the icon in Windows Explorer in "Thumbnail" view.

What is the default File association for icons .ico?

On my Me machine they are not associated with any program. However, in Win2k the "Always use this program...." is grayed out so I can't set it to no association.

I have also downloaded and been using Ifile, IconShop and IconEdit32.

Hope I've made this somewhat clear
 

A:Can't see Icons in "Thumbnail" view in Windows Explorer.

See if IconShop or IconEdit32 either one will give you the option of associating .ico files, through their "settings" or "options". If you have an image viewer that supports .ico file extensions, you can associate them with it.

What is your default image viewer? If it has the ability to view .ico files, then you can associate them with it.

If you can't associate it through one of the programs interface, then you can do it through any Windows Explorer window.. Just click Tools in the menu at the top and choose Folder Options>File Types>then find the extension and change the program that opens it.

My Windows 8.1 64 bit started forgetting the view settings from a folder.So if I go in a folder and I set it to List-View for example,whenever I close that folder and I reopen it the view is set automatically to Details view.And this applies to every folder in my computer except Desktop.It drives me crazy,especially in my pictures folders.

Also with this problem another one came.I can't set a program to open some files,so the file associations for some files is broken.For example i can't set qTorrent to open torrent files.It just won't open them and the files apear as white documents just like I hadn't had a Torrent program installed already.I find it weird that both problems appeared together.
I previously had to reinstall windows on my machine,because of this problems.It worked normal at the begging,but today these problems appeared again.
I tried scanning SFC Scan with no result.
I hope I will get a fix here.
Thanks.

Windows Explorer is not giving me a Thumbnail choice under View:



Also, in System Properties, Advanced tab, Performance button under Settings, when I check Show thumbnails instead of icons, then click Apply and OK, if I click the Performance button under Settings again, Show thumbnails instead of icons is unchecked. I can't get the change to take effect.

I suspect I changed something awhile ago but I can't remember what.

A:Windows Explorer has no Thumbnail selection under View

Hey Rich,

There wouldn't be a thumbnail preview setting in view. Instead, you would select either Medium Icons, Large Icons, or Extra Large Icons to be able to see thumbnail previews.

Go ahead and make sure that you have thumbnail previews turned on at both locations you mentioned to see if that may help.

I now cannot see the thumbnails of pictures in windows explorer (i'm not sure whether this was as a result of the clean up or not).

A:Increase Icons Size in Folder Details View

You can change the icon size to pretty much any size you like using CtrlMouseWheelZoom.exe

It's an AutoHotKey script compiled as an executable and you can download it here:

How to assign browser-like zooming hotkeys for resizing icons on the Desktop and in the Explorer window in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 | Winaero

In addition to the video shown in the above link here's another video (below) showing the script in action on my machine.

Folder is set to "General Items" and "Details View"

Icon size is remembered on a per folder basis (Folder Template Discovery is off). Not sure what happens if you've got Folder Template Discovery switched on.

Note: CtrlMouseWheelZoom.exe will run until you kill the process via task manager or other method.

Whenever I view a folder which contains .MP4 (H264) video files in large icon view (shows thumbnails), Windows 7's Explorer crashes. Explorer loads for a few seconds, the green progress bar shows up, and then boom!, Explorer crashes. The thumbnails are not shown before crashing. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I tried setting Folder options to 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' (disables thumbnails) on the same folder with MP4 (H264) video files and Explorer doesn't crash if the MP4 thumbnails aren't shown. I tried testing in other folders containing other video formats (with 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' set to off) like .AVI/Xvid, without an MP4/H264 file, and Windows Explorer shows the thumbnails fine without crashing.

I have not currently experienced problems with other formats, only MP4/H264. The only media players that I have installed are KMPlayer and VLC Media Player which both do not install external codecs, AFAIK. The only external codec I have installed is CoreAVC, but I have been using CoreAVC for months (KMPlayer+CoreAVC is one of the first things I installed in Windows 7) without any problems (this issue just arose a few days ago).

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit.

Note: I prefer a solution that will not end up disabling video thumbnails for MP4 files. I still would like to see MP4 video thumbnails, if possible. If the video files themselves are problematic, I reckon Explorer should not crash and just not show the thumbnails.

When using My Computer to view files, as it attempts to load thumbnails of .avi, or wmv. files either in the main window, or in the preview pane, many files cause the OS to freeze solid. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason, and sometimes the same file will work, then freeze the next time.

The freeze requires a "press and hold" of the power button to turn off the system. I don't get a blue screen, the existing one just locks up solid, and my cursor becomes immobile. No keys will function, nothing.

Hello,

I am looking for a way, either in Windows directly, or with an add-on application like Window Blinds, to change the appearance of my Taskbar. Currently, the Taskbar has icons on it for each open application, and when I hover over the application icon, the windows that are open in that application appear below my task bar as thumbnails (since I keep my taskbar on the top of the screen). However, sometimes, when Internet Explorer has too many windows open, and thus too many thumbnails to fit on the screen (horizontally), it will display a vertical list of open windows in that app. Alongside of each open window listing is the standard RED X for closing that window as well.

I would like it to display all of my program's open windows like this all of the time, regardless of how many are open. (No more thumbnails.)

This is the only thing I want to change. If someone knows how to do this in Windows or otherwise, can you please let me know?

Thanks for your help!

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 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?

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

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.

Thank you
Will

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
Chris

Hi

On my PC (Windows XP Home Edition) I have set the view to Thumbnail View. I get thumbnail images all image files (including Photoshop .psd files). If I highlight any thumbnail in any folder and right click my mouse I get the option to refresh the thumbnail.

My colleague (Windows XP Professional) gets thumbnail images with the exception of Photoshop .psd files and when these are highlighted and the mouse right clicked the option to refresh the thumbnail is not present.

Can anyone offer any explanation and possible cure for this phenomenon?

Probably because your colleague doesn?t have Photoshop installed?

Hi,

In Windows explorer one can view images in thumbnails. For some reasons however, I need to conveniently view a number of .wmf (Windows Metafile) and .emf(Enhanced Metafile) files with thumbnails. I didn?t find it possible with Windows Explorer.
Is there a way to enable them?
Bob
