Windows 7: Where have my pics gone?

Where have my pics gone?

Ah ... the joys of following all the tutorials herein (and I highly recommment them too!)
Somewhere I've changed a setting and now
instead of seeing thumbnails of my pictures when I go to the folder
I see all pictures with the same generic icon
whereas before I saw thumbnails of each pic.

What do I have to do to get my view back?

p.s. I'm not meaning the options of Icons, List, Details etc

right click my computer >> properties>> in left pan click advanced system settings >> advanced tab >>
in performance click settings >> check "show thumbnails instead of icons" that should work.

Hope this helps

Have a look at this: Folder Options - Vista Forums and follow the instructions in STEP TWO.

You need to ensure that the option Always show icons, never thumbnails is unchecked, as shown.
