I have been reading this tutorial and trying to get it to work for me for about an hour, but it is not doing what I want. I hope this is the right place... My Problem:
When viewing JPG's in a folder, I am trying to get Windows 7 Explorer to behave like my old WinXP did - ie, display the folder in thumbnail views (clearly, with no icons on each image), and then when I click on a photo to see it singly, to move to the next photo each time I hit ENTER or use an arrow forward. Sounds simple, but it has not been for me.
Following the instructions:
I am using WINDOWS PHOTO VIEWER as the default program.
Using OPTION ONE (on page 1 of this thread), I have set my FOLDER OPTIONS to UNCHECK "Always show icons, never thumbnails.)
I went into CONTROL PANEL, and under ATTACHED THUMBNAILS, checked the setting "Show thumbnails instead of icons.
I can get everything I want, except the thumbnails showing in the Folder View have icons (large green boxes with white checks) over each image
, making it practically useless. (I am attaching a screen print, which I hope shows my problem.)
In FOLDER OPTIONS, VIEW, ADVANCED SETTINGS, I have unchecked "Display File Icon on Thumbnails"
, which I thought should do the trick, but it makes no difference that I can see.
I have looked around other settings, but am afraid to try things I don't understand. (In trying to fix this small problem, my desktop and whole screen look seems to have changed, but I won’t ask for help on that. The change is subtle, and I am not even sure what it is. What ever happened to RIGHT CLICK to get explanations for settings?)
Anyway, I hope you can understand my problem on viewing thumbnails in a folder
, and please help me!
