Copy an image in .JPG or .GIF format that user want to use as folder picture into the folder itself.
Rename the picture file name to Folder. For example, Picture1.jpg should be renamed to Folder.jpg and Picture1.gif should be renamed to Folder.gif.
Optionally, set the folder picture file (Folder.img) with hidden attribute to prevent it from displaying when listing folder’s contents.
To revert and restore the original Windows Vista automatic assigned folder pictures, just delete the Folder.img file.
Tried this. Did not work =( Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the images folder where you would like to see thumbnails displayed. On the menu, click the Organize tab and then Folder And Search Options. On the ensuing control applet, click the View tab
and the Under Files And Folders, uncheck the Always Show Icons, Never Thumbnails check box. That will turn on thumbnails for that particular folder. If you want to apply the change to all folders, you should click the Apply To Folders button.
Click OK to finish the process.
These are my default definitions (uncheck Always Show Icons, Never Thumbnails box). What was supposed to change? If you want to change the currently displayed two pictures, you do it ... Thumbnail Cache - Clear and Reset .
I tried this. Restarted my computed, went to check the folder, nothing happened. I deleted the two pictures that I wanted to be displayed, downloaded them again, nothing happened. I then decided to save them to the folder using paint, under a new file name, nothing happened again...
I can't determine what generates those two images. Right now, they seem to be locked. No matter what I do, nothing changes them. Is there some way to solve them?
It doesn't bother me that much, it's more of a presentation issue than anything else, but it's something that I've been trying to find out ever since Vista, and no amount of experimentation ever lead me to any conclusion.. EDIT
: I just created a new folder and added the final two images I wanted to be displayed, but it still insists in displaying the old images... I'm out of ideas.
