Windows 7: Thumbnail Previews - Change Border

Hello Tomaskucinskas,

Sorry, but no. This will only change the border for all thumbnail previews instead.

You could change the default icon that is used for the .mkv file extension, but you would no longer have a thumbnail preview of it.

I'm trying to get all my video thumbnails to display as sprockets, but for some reason, mp4 files are displayed with just a drop shadow. I went into SystemFileAsssociactions\video and Treatment is already set to 3. Why are my mp4 thumbnails showing up differently? Also, all of my image file thumbnails are displayed with only a drop shadow even though treatment for image is set to 2. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello FrozenInferno,

How about in the registry location below instead?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image

Like I said, the image directory didn't seem to have an effect either. Nonetheless, I solved the problem. For any filetypes that for some reason ignored the treatment value set in the image or video directories, I created an identical treatment value in each of the filetypes' personal directories under SystemFileAssociations.

Brink,
Followed your tutorial a few years ago and solved the problem - had to do a fresh install of Windows 7 ( 32 Bit ) recently and now can't get it to work. Now there is even a drop down shadow on the blank image in Paint. Thanks for your help

Hello Twomotor, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Which option were you wanting?

Could you post a few screenshots showing this and your registry settings for this to see if it may help reveal what the issue may be?

Brink,
Sorry for the slow reply - jumping through this Forums Password hoops. Did a screenshot, looks like a mess, exspanded a lot of stuff looking for "Image".
I am comfortable with the mannual method if you can get me to the right place. Thanks again. Hope I don't screw up the Attachment part.

You're at the wrong location in the registry. image is at this location below instead.
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image
Did you restart the computer after merging the downloaded .reg file?
