Change thumbnail size in Windows explorer with Thumbnail Control
Changing thumbnail size in Windows explorer can be done without you tweaking the registry nor installing another software. An application is indeed needed, but it doesn’t require installation. You just launch it and do whatever you want to do with it. It is free and named as Thumbnail Control.
The usage is quite simple. As you can see from the screenshot here, Thumbnail Control only has two slide bars. While the left sidebar is used to set the level of the quality of thumbnails, the right one is used to decrease or increase the image thumbnail size in Windows explorer.
You won’t be able to see the effect of the resizing in real time, but it can be seen without restarting Windows. So, what you should do is guessing of how far you should drag the slidebars. After you press the “apply” button, you can see how big the thumbnail size now in your Windows explorer. If it is too big or less than your expectation, move the slidebar again to get another result.
If you finally have the thumbnail size just like what you demand for, don’t launch the program anymore unless you need to change the current size. Everytime you launch it, the setting will go to the default size.
With Thumbnail Control, you can easily change thumbnail size in Windows explorer though you have to do it in a “blind mode”. It is perfect for ones who don’t want to mess up the registry. Thumbnail Control supports Windows XP. It is, once again, a freeware that doesn’t need to be installed whatsoever.Lijit Search
