VISTA: Disabling Thumbnail Display To Speed Up Windows Explorer

You can give a small performance boost to Vista by disabling thumbnails.  If you do a lot of work with images, thumbnail display may come in handy, but for the rest of us, it creates a drag on system resources.  Since each file has to read before a thumbnail is created, a lot of computing time and power is used up for this process.  Here’s the quick and easy way to turn it off:

1. Open Explorer (Windows key + E).
2. Click “Organize”
3. Click “Folder and Search Options”.
4. Click the “View” tab.
5. Check the box beside “Always shown icons, never thumbnails”.
6. Click on “OK”. ')}
