You folks are right. It doesn't work that way anymore. It's by design.

It's not "broken". Microsoft just decided that it won't work that way anymore.

As a workaround a Desktop.ini containing the following code should display the folder.jpg in the folder as the logo for the folder


Code:
[ViewState]
Mode=
Vid=
FolderType=Generic
Logo=.\folder.jpg
This appears to be what has been removed

How do you know? Please tell us. If this is true I suppose many people will have to settle for Beta 1. I'm not going to fix 20 000+ folders manually every time I reinstall my Windows. I suspect many others will be pissed too. Larger thumbnails was one of the most noticeable new features of Win7 compared to XP and now its totally ruined. I can't believe this is happening...

Did anybody bother to read the moderator's post above? I can show you the DOS command to copy his file to all your precious folders if you can't handle it.

Well I made a desktop.ini file, copy pasted that text in there, saved, applied system+hidden attributes, copied the file in and it had no effect. So my question remains.

What do you mean might need fixing? The jpg file association? Ini file? Folder? I don't see how this could be related to any of that.
