    Resize Images in Windows Explorer Thumbnails View (WindowsXP Home SP-2)

    I need to find a way to increase the size of pictures displayed in my Windows Explorer, when in "Thumbnails" view, so I can see them. My screen resolution is set at 1280 x 768, and what I see is miniscule. Using the filmstrip works, but with my work in creating visual tours, I have over 150 shots to review and as you can figure out, filmstrip is not very efficient for me.

    Is there a setting I can change, besides reducing my screen resolution, to increase the thumbnail size?

    Thanks,

    --Jim

    The free utility Tweak UI from Microsoft allows you to change the size (and image quality) of thumbnails, in the Explorer > Thumbnails section. You can download it from Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP.

    If you work with thumbnails a lot, you may want to invest in a third-party approach to getting it done. I've long been a fan of ACDSee for image manipulation. You have a lot of control over thumbnails and a lot more. If your needs are basic, follow Hans' link to TweakUI.
