    Hi Guys,

    I have a friend's machine here, WindowsME PIII 866 128Megs,

    Anyways, in their "My Pictures" folder, it is set to show files as Thumbnails, however only some pics are actually showing on the Thumbnail, other thumbnails only show icon of a program. Question, how do I get these iconned thumbnails to show the pic?

    Thanks in advance,

    what format are the .non-showing thumbnails?

    if u r sure they are all JPEG or BMP (the only bitmap formats that ME will show as thumbnails) then try deleting the 'thumbs.db' file in the same folder so Windows has to build a new one.
