Hi al4x! Here's step-by-step instructions:

Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable

1. Open Windows Explorer

2. Click "Organise" and choose "Folder and Search Options".

3. Click on the "View" Tab

4. Under the "Files and Folders" heading, tick "Always show icons, never thumbnails."

5. Click Ok.

That's it!

Hope I Helped,
