I have most of my movie and pics files stored in a folder in the D: as thumbnails, but when I move cut paste or copy them into the C : they automatically change into Icons and I am not able to make them appears as thumbnails even after selecting the Thumbnail option. Is this the same with everyone, or do I have to make some changes somewhere...... My OS is XP Pro

File/folder view...is determined by the options set for each respective folder/directory/drive.

If you move a file from a folder where the selected option is Thumbnail...to a folder/directory where the selected/default option is Icon, you will get what you describe.

If you want to change the view option for that folder/directory, then you can do that.

If you want all the options for every folder/file to be the same (I don't recommend this), you can also set this up.
