Control thumbnail display size


Want to control the size of the Thumbnails view in My Computer?

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

Name: ThumbnailSize

Type: REG_DWORD

Value: 25-256
25 is
smallest thumbnails and 256 is largest. Experiment for your workstation and set
it to what works best for you.

Find that you need more space for thumbnails and would like to turn the file
names off? Hold down shift when you open a folder or when you switch into
thumbnail view. This will turn of the file names, giving more space for the
thumbnails. Doing it again turns them back on.
