Thanks for the quick response, Shawn. Might I ask why this ability has been removed when it was there in XP? I can see no reason for it and the increase in work times that this causes is horrendous. I have thousands of saved Web pages. The example I posted is a review of a Nikon camera and it goes to 35 pages. This particular review was better than most in that each page of the review had a defining name, but I have many hundreds of saved pages of Computer hardware reviews that are simply named "page 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, etc, etc". I now have to wait whilst each page loads to see which part of the review it refers to, whereas under XP I simply open the folder and immediately have, in the case of the Nikon review, 35 thumbnails. Very large ones too on a 24" monitor.
I really appreciate your response, Shawn, as I have been trawling the Net for weeks over this. There must be thousands of us out here with this problem and there is no respose whatsoever from Microsoft. If it's a security problem, why doesn't MS say so and tell us the reason ? If it is we should surely be given the option of switching it on or off, as we can with UAC.
As a workaround I reboot into XP, open up the relative folder, take a screenshot of the large thumbnails and retain in the same folder. When I am back with Vista I can open the JPG and see what each page is. However, each time I do that I ask myself why the hell do I have to do this? It's crazy.
I guess if you can't come up with a fix
, Shawn, nobody can, but it can't be that hard surely ? Maybe Bill can have a go at it for something to do during his retirement !
Thanks again, Shawn.
