How can I have some of my folders set to ENABLE THUMBNAIL VIEW... which comes in handy when viewing images within a folder? I have Win98se and can't seem to find out how to do it.

I see options for views etc... but don't see ENABLE THUMBNAIL VIEW.

Thank you

DAVID

It's been a while and I don't have W98 to check this but I seem to remember that you need to select "View as a Webpage" to get the option for ThumbNail View. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will let me know. :)

I found out how. Right-Click within the folder, choose the option to ENABLE THUMBNAIL VIEW. Thanks for your help also Bryan... as always.

Thumbnails and previews (cumulative post of cures I got from other posts)


http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000284.htm

See: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=176882

OR

Try #6 here: http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Music/9899/

Download, unzip, place the reg file into a folder and doubleclick on it to merge it. See if the previews are back now.

or see here: http://www.geocities.com/one_human/advanced.html#imagefix

Try this

Go to Start | Run
Type in or copy the following:

regsvr32 thumbvw.dll


I also had this problem with the previewing in the left pane in win98. Someone told me to do this to solve another problem of mine and it fixed this as well:

click on the run button on the startmenu. Type this (without the quotations) "regsvr32 webvw.dll" . It should say something like webvw.ddl succeded. Maybe this will work for you.

Sorry, I didn't see that you'd fixed the problem!
