This is my 1st post in the forums, I have no profile info filled out, I'm not looking to waste anyones time but do have a question to ask, prior to my asking I searched and found nothing, anyway I'm looking for a way to enlarge the size of the thumbnail preview in Windows 7 I know that there was a registry mod for windows XP that would allow you to change the overall size of thumbnail I'm looking for something that will allow me to do that in windows 7
I am aware that Windows & has a slider bar that will allow you to change from a detail view to a extra large view however I find all are to small for my use, here is my situation.
I have a wireless HTPC setup @ use a 50" HDTV as the only monitor, I use a screen resolution of 1804 X 1004 and a DPI scale of 148% as this is the only settings that will allow me to read text, navigate windows and use all installed programs as needed, the problem I have is the preview size of all thumbnails is entirely to small.
I would like to change the default size of all of thumbnails to a larger size, I know there was a registry mod for XP that would allow you to change the size of the thumbnail I need something similar for Windows 7 the problem I have is when using windows explorer a small icon view gives me exactly 100 thumbnails all are so frikking small I can't begin to tell what the thumbnail represents, with using a medium view I have 88 thumbnails still all to small to view, the only setting I can use that even starts to give me a preview that is larger enough to tell what it represents is a extra large view.
In extra large icon view I have 24 thumbnails displayed on the 50" screen I would like to re size the thumbnails so that I have only 9 or 12 thumbnails shown, any help would be appreciated.
