    Folder Photos: Showing Thumbnail Photos Rather Than IrfanView Icons ?


    Hello,

    I have a Folder on my Desktop in which
    I have placed many photos.

    The listing shows up just fine, and if I click on one of them, it opens perfectly.
    No problems.

    But, the listing in the Folder only shows a small IrfanView icon for each of them, and then a name or number.

    Any way to have the listing show small thumbnails of the actual pix's, rather than just
    an IrfanView icon for each ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Open File Explorer > top right, click Options > click Change folder and search options > click View at top > UN-check the box " Always show icons, never thumbnails" > OK when done.

    I'm using this old thread because this is an old problem that has never been fixed. I got a new computer about 3 months ago and made the mistake AGAIN if installing Irfanview. Be warned. The author had disabled his forum because Irfanview will destroy your Windows 10 installation and over time, the irfanview icon will be displayed for every windows app. No method of fixing this I have found ever works, its like a virus. The author has several links about how to rebuild your icon cache but none of it works and he has disabled registration in his forum. Uninstalling irfanview does not work. I warn you DO NOT INSTALL IRFANVIEW!! Its worse than a virus because there is no fix.
