When I attach an image to an email, or when I open an image in Photoshop, I
always have to change the View Menu in order to see Thumbnails! I would
like to have the Thumbnail view as my default opening choice, how do I
change this? I looked in Conrol Panel/Folder Options/View, but I didn't see
any setting that looked like it would change this. Can someone help?

Thanks!

Even though we've never met, may I say you're amazing???

Yes, it fixed the problem. And another problem arose in the meantime -- I
couldn't set OE as my default mailer! When I go to Control Panel, Internet
Options, there are no programs listed in the drop down menu. Your fix
actually fixed BOTH problems!!!

I am amazingly grateful.

And I just see I responded to the wrong e-mail. Sorry! The reply I just
sent was actually to my post concerning my OE problem.

Hmmm.. How about sharing this amazing solution you found now that you
tweaked our interest?

Nevermind - once I found the other post, this all looks pretty ironic.

Run the edit on line2 left side and reboot
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
or install SP2,once you change the setting to thumbnail view it should stay
that way after you apply this edit.

Thanks Mike..
I meant to get back to this one since I had basically had a conversation in
the thread unrelated to the answer - but hadn't yet.

Thanks Mike, I have SP2 installed but when I choose Thumbnail View it
doesn't stay that way, I have to make the choice each time I open another
folder. I may try the Registry hack you pointed me to (thank you), but it
just seems silly that you would have to go to that extreme for such a basic
problem, I'm not real comfortable messin' around with the Registry!

Unfortunately - for people who think its beyond them that is - the registry
hack is becoming the only way to fix/tweak many things in Windows XP. So
much of Windows XP depends on/is determined by registry settings.
