Windows 7: Limited list for Visual Effects in Advanced system settings

Limited list for Visual Effects in Advanced system settings


I am currently having a problem with trying to set the thumbnail art for my MP3 folders.

Previously I adjusted my settings to increase the speed of my PC by disabling Aero and other settings but cannot get the full list of settings in the "Visual Effects" menu.

I know there is supposed to be a checkbox in their to enable thumbnail as preview for folders, but it does not seem to be in the list.

Hello ChoboBot, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yeah, when you disable Aero, you lose some of the visual effects settings until you enable Aero again.

However, you should be able to use a method in the tutorial below to enable thumbnail previews even with Aero disabled.

Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps, :)
