    When I find a picture in internet explorer and I save it on my desktop it says no preview available. But when I save the Picture to a folder it shows me the picture. Is this normal???

    The problem is that you are trying to use a thumbnail in an icon only
    area. This does not work. The desktop will only display Icons. It
    will not display thumbnails.

    If you want to change the folder icon to something else then you have
    to change the icon in the customize area. Changing the thumbnail
    image does nothing to the icon on the desktop. However once you
    change the thumbnail image and then go to the desktop folder in
    Explorer and choose to view thumbnails then you would see your custom
    folder there. But you would still only see an icon on the desktop.
