  1. Is there a way that when there's only 1 video inside a folder...it shows a big thumbnail instead of small?

    like this:

    Right click on the folder
    Select Properties
    Choose Customize
    Select "Choose Picture"
    Find a picture that looks like a Racing car (ie your example)
    Apply
    OK

    see that small video thumbnail in the "before" pic?

    I want it resized to a bigger thumbnail like in the "after"

    this pic is just an example.


    I have many folders that have 1 video inside them.

    I dont think I'll be doing that on all of them.


    I actually tried before using a tweak program that resizes thumbnails, but it resizes folders with pics too which I don't want.

    Some movies , inside a folder, seem to use the pic from the movie expanded
    But obviously this one (and possibly many others you have, don't)
    You just need to screen dump a pic, and then save it inside the folder.
    Then do the customize part

    Not sure how else to get a large pic displayed on a folder

    there must be a way to do this, maybe editing in registry?
