    Vista image file icon feature for everyone

    There is a neat feature in Vista which displays and image file's icon as an actual thumbnail of the image. I have found this to be extremely useful. But you can also add this feature to your current system [Windows 98/98SE/ME/2000/XP] and the cost is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>.

    You can read about it and download your own copy here: Xentient Thumbnails (Freeware).

    <font color=red>WARNING:</font color=red> You will need to disable/pause your Antivirus program before installing this program. I'm running Kaspersky and it blocked one of the files from installing on my first attempt. After I installed this program successfully I did a quick scan with KAV and my system is clean. Thus use your own judgment re: installation. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Thanks for that.

    I have just downloaded and installed without problem.

    Just to further describe what it does, it means that in Details View, you can have a tiny thumbnail of the image.

    Actually, every size of icon for an image file becomes a mini-thumbnail of the actual image, e.g., 16x16 as in your screenshot, 32x32, 48x48, et al.
