Windows 7: Thumbnails on images, but not on folders

Thumbnails on images, but not on folders

Hi, im writing my very first thread here.

And this is my problem. I applied a custom folder icon in regedit and for it to work you had to check "always show icons, never thumbnails" but now i cant see thumbnails on images. Like this: no thumbnails. And i really want to view thumbnails on my images.

So is there a way to have thumbnails on everything except folders?

So what you did is you applied "always show icons, never thumbnails" on the folder containing the images?

Thats why then. If you apply "always show icons, never thumbnails" this will effect the files inside that folder too.

Can you somehow do it for only the "first" folder, the root folder that i have my images in? And then in the folder show thumbnails? It would be great if it worked!

I really doubt it, but with a reg hack it might be possible
