Increase the thumbnail size of file/folder.

This tweak is used to increase the thumbnail size of file/folder in Windows Explorer.

Tweak for : Windows XP, Windows 2003
A thumbnail represents a small version of full size picture/graphic. Normally, it is a square of one inch and its size is about 4-5 KB but all this depends on the program through which it is created and the size of the original graphic. The default size is 96 pixels.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below and search the key. You can create a DWORD value “ThumbnailSize”, in the right panel, if this value does not exist.

Now, right-click and modify its value to enter the desired value data in pixels. However, to have default value, just delete the added value name .

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
