The problem is that Explorer only seems to load one screen's worth of image previews/thumbnails at a time, so if you scroll down a bit, it has to load each line of thumbnails as you get to it, which is a bit "stop-start".
I would like to know how to load the thumbnails for ALL the files in a folder BEFORE scrolling through them. This way, I can wait for 5 minutes at the start for everything in the folder to load, but then all the previews are already cached, and I can just scroll through without having to wait for every line of images. Ideally, I would pre-load all the previews for all my image folders.
It is not particularly slow at loading the previews; I have a Quad-Core Pentium and 3GB of RAM - but I would just like them all to be ready before I start scrolling through.
Is this possible?
