Windows 7: Thumbnail and Icon Displaying Together

Thumbnail and Icon Displaying Together

This problem has been bugging me literally all day, and I finally joined to get to the bottom of this.





That blue will be the coat to the yellow folders from extra large - medium, then the yellow folders stick around for all the little sizes.

What the hell?

"Never thumbnails" means "never thumbnails" I guess...

The blue is the folder icon, the yellow bits inside are thumbnails (some fixed images, but if you have a folder of images, some actual image thumbnails will be used in there)

So this is the way it's supposed to look? It looks pretty idiotic to me...

Well since the default is to show thumbnails it mostly looks good for most people.

I supposed it SHOULD just stick with the stock images inside the blue fodlers though, that would look better and would give yo a cluse as to how windows is going to view the folder when you open it...

But yes that's thw way it works on my computer too (though I don't have the blue fodlers, just the stock yellow ones)

Thank you for your input. I guess I'll just have to get used to it.

Thumbnail icon on WMV file seems to be 'tagged' on
As you know, Windows will show a picture representation of a video file when you click on it (as long as you're not using list/details view etc). I'm currently working on a wmv file that, even if I take a clip from the middle of it, the thumbnail shown is the same as the original file i.e. a frame...

Thumbnail previews for edited pics not displaying properly
I'm running W7 64-bit and using Faststone as my default image viewer/editor. If I change the hue of a picture from, for example, brown to blue, the thumbnail for the new blue picture remains brown instead of changing to reflect the new color. This is frustrating because I don't know what half of...
