    On Windows Me my thumbnail option no longer works on folders in my picture folder. I can get image preview if I set it up using folder options. Thumbnails do however appear when I use Nikon view in the "hard disc folder" which is what you select prior to printing photos. Any ideas?

    Try this one first:

    Try: Start-Run -(type in) regsvr32 thumbvw.dll
    then ENTER and reboot.

    If no luck use this:

    http://www.burzurq.com/forum/fix_thumbnails.html

    Here is what the fix looks like if you do it manually;

    Copy and paste everything from Regedit 4 to the bottom of the >>>>>> (don't include the >>>>>>>'s) line from this post into notepad.
    At the top of notepad click file>>save as.
    Save it to your desktop.
    Make sure the "Save As Type" box on the middle bottom is set to "All files".
    Call the file "jpg.reg".
    Click save.
    Close Notepad.

    On your desktop there should now be a file called jpg.reg that looks like a piece of paper with a blue rubic's cube falling apart on it.
    Double click on it.
    It will ask you if you want to merge these values with your registry.
    If you have backed up your registry, say yes.
    Reboot.
    Test Thumbnails.
