Its a noob question but....

How on earth do you get the customize folder options that were in XP on Vista.
My HD died on me and my XP disk didnt work, had a vista disk laying aound so i used that, after i transfered some pictures from USB hard drive I wanted to view them in thumbnail view, but all you see is just half thumbs in a folder and no option to choose a jpeg picture do display in front of folder.
Tried converting just file from each folder to .ico format and changing the icon to the picture so I know whats in there, but even in extra large view they come up tiny, even though the icon border is huge but you can hardly see the picture. Tried resizing the picture in all manner of res too.

Anyone know a way around getting the XP folder settings on vista or a good mod program for this?

Assuming Vista is similar to Windows 7 ...

Because I've never delved very deep into Vista but I am totally submerged in Windows 7...

If you open Folder Options and select the View [TAB] I think you'll find a suitable combination if you play around with the top three checkboxes.

Tried playing about with it, but no luck.

It displays the thumbnails inside the folder icon. and to make it worse, in pairs.

Looks like I just need to have it on extra large view.

Darn Vista!
