    I was wondering if anyone knows a way to use "customize this folder" for multiple folders to change the "image preview" all at once. It seems that I have to manually change each folder so I can see thumbnails in the large "image preview" window. I've tried to select multiple sub-folders and use the "customize this folder" option, but it only changes the folder (not sub-folders).

    Any suggestions?

    bye the way, I'm using Windows ME and IE6.0

    When you customize a folder new folder.htt and desktop.ini ( hidden files) are created inside that folder. If you then copy and paste those two into another folder that other folder will share the same customization.

    However, do not do that for "Special Folders" like the Recycle Bin or My Computer. They have special desktop.ini & folder.htt files which determine their behavior. Do those manually. Use the copy and paste for run of the mill Folders only.
