Windows 7: Can you scale the contents of the preview pane?

Can you scale the contents of the preview pane?

I have started using the preview pane in explorer. The problem I have is that the files are not scaled and I have to scroll or move them around so I might as well open them in the first place.


Is there any way of scaling the preview pane so I don't have to open it up to nearly the size of the screen just to see the contents? Is there a scaling option?


Thanks

Hi cosmarchy, You can resize the preview pane by left clicking on the mouse and dragging the line to the

right, if this is what you are looking for.

I had discovered this already...the problem is that I have to have the pane maximised so much there is little room for anything else on the screen.


I was hoping that the contents of the pane could be scaled to fit regardless of the size of the pane itself.

Hi cosmarchy, Have you tried from the dropdown menu, more options, and choose small icons.
