Windows 7: *.avi and *.jpg preview problem

*.avi and *.jpg preview problem

Hi. In XP it wasn't problem but in 7 it is. I want to disable preview of video files all the time and enable preview of *.jpg.

In XP on desktop *.jpg was only default icon but everywhere in explorer it was a small picture (when directory was set to show bigger icons) or I could see preview after highlight it. So I want to see default (system) icon of *.jpg on dekstop (like in XP) even if preview is enabled.

In 7 it's solved bad. We have disable preview of all files or of none of them

Hi bernard, and Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Have you tired to go into "Default Programs" on the "Start Menu" and set what .dot files are to be used by what program. This should fix the problem.

Also, BTW as a new member it would help us in the future if you would please post your System Specs. . .Thank You In Advance. Lee
