Category: Home > Windows > Appearance > Fonts and Icons
Makes Explorer show a thumbnail version of bitmaps files in the current folder rather than the generic icon ordinarily used. This is a great way to preview .BMP files without having to open them first.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Modify the value of (Default) to equal '%1'.
Restart Windows for the change to take effect.
System Key: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Paint.Picture\DefaultIcon]|
