Nah, it's not that setting anyway. I removed it and it stayed the same. Oh, and thanks for reminding me to update my system spec -- I'm on 7068 32-bit...

Yeah, maybe it worked in Vista, but it seems not in 7. No problem.

Um. Yes -- my larger previews seem to have something to do with my some of my experiments with modifying visual styles --

None of it works completely yet so I've not published anything.

Yeah but that's not really making the size of the actual thumbnail preview of the windows itself much bigger.. That doesn't really accomplish much compared to what I need anyway

It's easy. Click on the body of folder where you want to increase thumbnail preview size (so no files are selected). Hold down control and alt and then scroll with your scroll button on your mouse. This will allow you to enlarge and reduce thumbnail previews with more control than using the "medium" "large" or "extra large" options.

Not referring to TASKBAR thumbnails but EXPLORER thumbnails.
