This is not a new tip or a great one, but may be useful in certain cases. Thumbnail preview helps users quickly identify files while browsing through Windows explorer.
It is especially useful if you have a very large list of video crippling and image files on your system, but if you own an old PC or an entry level one that’s slow down because of this.
However Windows 7 (and also Vista) has an option to disable this.
- Open Windows explorer (double click ‘my computer’)
- Click the ‘Organize’ menu and select ‘Folder and Search’ option from the drop-down list
- Click on ‘View’ tab and check the box against ‘Always show icon, never Thumbnails’.
- Click OK to save the settings.
Nice tip. Switching to Basic theme also improves Win7 speed.ReplyDelete
