Hello, I realized that there is an image on one of my folders, when I tried to restore the folder to its default setting the image remained. It appears as though the image is now the default for that folder but I would like to remove it. Does anyone have some suggestions? :)

Changes to the appearance and behavior of your files and folders by using the advanced settings of Folder Options in Control Panel.


Always show static icons of files and never show thumbnail previews of files. Use this setting if the thumbnail previews are slowing down your computer. You'll get better performance by using static icons.


Click the View tab, and then select the Always show icons, never thumbnails check box. To restore the original behavior of your advanced settings, click the View tab, and then click Restore Defaults.

Hope that works for you.
