No Live Folders by Mr-Ragnarok No Live Folders by Mr-Ragnarok
Thanks to SonaaR [link] who found out how to turn off image preview (thumbnails) on folders

This is how U do it:

Download SageThumbs [link] and install it

Then download XnView Plugins [link] and install it

Open folder options (Control Panel/Apperance and Personalization/Folder Options) and check "Always show icons, never thumbnails" under the view tab

One big bonus is that this thumbnail viewer let us see so much more: icns, psd etc :)

Thats it :)

Hello, I installed an icon pack and did this all but now all my .png files wont have a preview in explorer. .jp(e)g files are working fine.

There's been another change now. Since a few days all media files are only showing file type icons. I didn't change any of the settings since you asked if my files were associated.

Hey there, this works great except for 1 small thing. For some reason all my .png files and some .gif files only show a filetype icon in large icon mode. Is there anyway to fix it so I can see the pictures again?

Thanks/

Thanks for the fast reply :).

Yes it is, was the first thing I checked after I noticed it didn't change with the rest. Maybe the reason I didn't work properly is because when I click "ok" it said I needed to do it with administrative rights (even though I did "run as admin" and my account is the only one so it's admin by default).

Unfortunately I still haven't been able to figure a way out to fix it. I was actually hoping you did. Maybe there's someone else out there with the solution. At least I hope so.
