Windows 7: Can File "image" be changed to XP style ??

Can File "image" be changed to XP style ??

As a professional photographer, one of the most annoying things that bothers me about Windows7 is that the file folder looks like an open book with an image coming out of it. THAT is not good enough. In that respect, I liked WindowsXP much better.

Is there ANY WAY to change it in Windows7 so that it looks like the old style WindowsXP file, with a flat front that you can put a selected image on?

In other words, I want a single image "over" the file so that I can instantly "SEE" what's in the file. It helps a great deal in photography and sorting images.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

I think you can name an image "Folder.jpg" and that file will be displayed on the thumbnail (effectively what XP did behind the scenes), but as for changing the style itself I'm not sure you can.

No, sorry, but that doesn't work.

What I want, is the photo to be "all the way over" the FRONT of the file, not just sticking out of it.

Thanks anyway.
