Why use the same old icons when you can use thumbnails?
When you select a folder with bitmaps in Windows
Explorer, it'll indicate all bitmap files using the same
old icon. Did you know that you can make Windows display
a thumbnail of those bitmaps instead?
- Run "Registry Editor"
- Select "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp"
and note the "default"
value for it ("Paint.Picture"
- Now select "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Paint.Picture"
being the default value as explained above)
- Double click on "default"
- Type "%1"
without the quotes and press ENTER
- Restart Windows
Now when you view directories with bitmap files,
you'll actually see a small (32x32 by default)
representation of those pictures.
