if youre looking a fast way to create/copy new folder from the old one, this one might help:

===========================================================

Am using a PC with WinXPpro, is there a way to "copy" a folder structure
without the files?

For instance, suppose I have something like this, even though this example
is much smaller than the multi-folder arrangement on his PC that I need to
copy...

Answer:

First get to "DOS" : Windows key+R
then type the command

XCOPY /t /e /i "C:\Movies\2005" "C:\Movies\2006"

which will create an empty tree the same as ...2005 as ...2006

I have already turned off thumbnails, but I don't think it matters because I set everything to view in "list", so I never see thumbnails anyway.

Also, I have also tried using Icon Changer, but it is not able to change icons for individual folders, which is what I need.

Any other ideas?
Could somebody tell me how to TURN ON thumbnails??? Lol, I can't seem to get them when I look in view like in XP. Thanks to anyone who can help!!!

In Explorer. Press Organize, select Folder and Search Options, On the View tab make sur the top box (Always show icons never thumbnails) is unchecked.
