    Thumbnail View
    Win98's Thumbnail view will display miniature versions of graphics files in a folder. To turn this option on, right-click on the closed folder (not on a shortcut to a folder) that contains the graphics files and select Properties. Check the box next to Enable Thumbnail View, open the folder and select Thumbnails from its View menu. It may take a few moments for Win98 to draw the thumbnails. You can also display HTML files this way.
