Windows 7: How to ... folder preview

How to ... folder preview

Hello guys, greetz from Serbia!

I have one crazy question and i know this might seem dumb and a lil too perfectionistic...

So.... I'm using large icon preview, and most folders in my computer have three files. The picture, the movie clip and a subtitle.

It normaly looks like this:

Preview of movie clip and a picture.

But, sometimes for some reason, instead of picture or movie clip there is a preview of subtitle...

How? Why?

Thanks in advance.

Hello trstra and welcome to SF!

I'm just guessing here but I believe it depends on the actual names the preview shows like the first and last file in the list.
So compare the folder where it works alphabetically with the folder that doesn't work and see on what position are the items that are shown.

You may want to have a look at

Yammm - Yet Another Media Meta Manager

this will add a folder.jpg file to the folder which will give a single poster for each folder.
