well, i think i remember in windows xp that whenever you had pictures in any folder, and you were in that folder using windows explorer, that you were able to see a thumbnail of the actual picture IN the folder....

but in windows vista, and now in windows 7 (i upgraded a while ago), i'm not able to see the thumbnail of the actual picture itself....all i see inside the pictures folder (or any folder with pics for that matter), is a little thumbnail of a blue mountain...

i have a bunch of pictures, and i dont like having to click on every single one until i find the one i'm looking for....it VERY inconvenient and time consuming.

so, does anyone know how to fix this? make it so i can see thumbnails of the ACTUAL PICTURE, and not of a blue mountain for every single picture?

See this tutorial http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/11738...ble.html?filter[2]=File Folder Settings

In your pictures library, set your view to medium icons.
