Okay, I have Windows Vista and I have a lot of 'books' on my drives. I want to be able to see the book covers for the books when I use Explorer so I can pick them out easier.

All I seem to be able to see is the icon of the program that is the default for opening that type of file.

Can someone help me here?

Moondog, you can find the book covers by going into Google and searching the image. Right click on the image and 'save as' .jpg
If these books are in their own folders, then you can change the folder to the image.

Hi Jacee,
Thanks, but that's not what I meant. On my laptop (running XP) when I navigate to a folder of one of my series (mostly reference books of vehicles/aircraft/uniforms etc...) I can see the cover of each book when I use Windows Explorer 'VIEW' but in Vista, they don't show up. (They did at one time, but they don't now and I don't know why).

I want to be able to browse through a folder and pick books out at a glance of the cover. All of my books have the cover as the first image in the .pdf files

Does that make more sense?
