I like to have all my folders & such set to be view as THUMBNAILS but I don't like how they automatically generate based on what's in the folder. Is there a way to not have this happen & only show the default folder unless I set a certain picture?

I thought maybe if I delete the THUMBS file & check the settings box DO NOT CACHE THUMBNAILS would work but it's still showing the pictures.

Are you looking to create a parent folder, right click it, click properties, customize, choose picture, tick apply this template to all sub folders, click apply

Each new folder you create within this folder should then have the same picture on it

Basically I want the folders with existing images to be reset to the default folder. I know about the whole PROPERTIES/CUSTOMIZE option but I don't know how to get it to show no picture. I've included a screenshot. The DELL folder is an example of one I'd want to show like the rest.

Of course click the picture for a larger shot. Hah.

I know this is such a pety issue but it's just something I'd like to do if possible. I just like to have a clean looking computer & setup & such.

That should be tools, folder options, reset all folders and restore defaults on all the tabs, clicking apply on each tab

Right click one of the folders, click properties, customize, change icon, if restore default is not an option, part two of this should help

Sweet it worked. For the most part. I was trying to change the WINDOWS folder & it doesn't give me the same option as regular folders. Same with the SYSTEM32 subfolder.

Yeah. If you do the whole PROPERTIES thing you'll see that it has a different set of options than most other folders. Doesn't include the CUSTOMIZE tab.

It did that on mine, but no idea why, or why it stopped doing it, maybe if you click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file click delete, run disc clean up and reboot

Will have a look for something
