Turn Off Thumbnail Caching Posted By:
Last Updated: September 4th 2003
Tip Difficulty Level: Novice
basic tip here. Every time you go into a folder which contains either
pictures or movies, Windows creates a thumbnail image so you can get an idea
of what the picture/movie content will be. The thumbnail cache helps speed
up access to the thumbnails instead of having them load up every time you go
into a folder, but each picture you have in a folder will take up around
2kb's, so imagine a folder with 200 photos and what size the cache could end
How This Tip Works
The fact is though that these days having a thumbnail cache isn't
that important, the thumbnails load up here in my machine in seconds
without it. So here is how you remove the caching system for
Click on "CONTROL PANEL" from the Start
Click on "FOLDER OPTIONS" in the Control
Click the view tab
Finally - tick the "DO NOT CACHE
THUMBNAILS" box and then click APPLY.
Your Windows XP system will now no longer cache thumbnails. If you
wish to go back to caching them, get back to the folder options menu
like we did about and untick the box.
