    Hi!

    I'm looking for a way to disable completely the "thumbnails" view in windows xp.
    Don't get me wrong, I don't want to disable the caching of thumbnails, I want to kill it completely.

    Does any one knows a way to do that?

    [Start] [Run] [Regedit]
    Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Explorer\Advanced
    Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.
    Data Type: REG_DWORD [Dword Value] // Value Name: DisableThumbnailCache
    Setting for Value Data: [0 = Disabled / 1 = Enabled]
    Exit Registry and Reboot


    If you disable it isnt it killed then

    That just disables caching, IKE.
    I'd like the view to disappear completely.
    Maybe my previous post wasn't very clear...

    I changed the view mode, but f*cking windows won't remember the settings.
    I don't like thumbnails cause it slows the system each time I open a folder.
    Plus I don't want to let a piece of software have the last word!
