A New Thumbnails View

The Thumbnails view in Windows XP has a new twist. If a folder contains images saved in a common web format, XP will create an icon for the folder that displays up to four of the images it contains. To show a single image, right-click on the folder icon, choose 'Properties' and click on the 'Customize' tab. Under 'Folder Pictures', select 'Choose Pictures', select the picture you want to open in the thumbnail and click OK.
