Windows 7: Folder Thumbnail View

Folder Thumbnail View

Hello all,

I at first didn't know how to give thumbnail views to folders as I had tried every step(checking & unchecking stuff in Folder Options) but recently my friend told me to rename the image to "Folder" in order to get thumbnail view.

Now, what I want to know is if there is any way to not get a bended view of the pic. As the bended view doesn't give the full pic view.

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards
HDM

There have been several threads on this subject. If you scroll back far enough you'll find them. But for starters, take a look at this thread: Folder Image Cover posted by BlazingInferno in this section 2 weeks ago.

Hello there friend,

First of all thank you very much for replying

But I don't think you understood my problem. I have no problems whatsoever giving a preview pic to a folder. I can easily give them but I want them non-bended, straight like XP used to have.



See how the "L" & "O" is almost cut out of the preview? That's what I'm talking about.

Cheers!

It looks to me like this is what you are describing:


and if so, that is what is in the Folder Image Cover thread I gave you. See post #7 by Arc where he explains exactly how to create this.

Yes, I think that is the deal. I got all the parts right except the square resolution factor.

So, problem solved & thank you all for replying
