    Folder Photos: Showing Thumbnail Photos Rather Than IrfanView Icons ?


    Open File Explorer > top right, click Options > click Change folder and search options > click View at top > UN-check the box " Always show icons, never thumbnails" > OK when done.

    Folder Photos: Showing Thumbnail Photos Rather Than IrfanView Icons ?


    Hello,

    I have a Folder on my Desktop in which
    I have placed many photos.

    The listing shows up just fine, and if I click on one of them, it opens perfectly.
    No problems.

    But, the listing in the Folder only shows a small IrfanView icon for each of them, and then a name or number.

    Any way to have the listing show small thumbnails of the actual pix's, rather than just
    an IrfanView icon for each ?

    Thanks,
    Bob
