    thumbnail view

    i want to know how i can make the thumbnail view of a word document appear as the miniture actual document. I know this can be done because i saw it, but i'm not sure how it's done.

    Do any of you guys/girls know how to do this?? I have XP Pro and Office XP Pro.

    THanks.

    You want to select the Thumbnail from the view Menu in Windows Explorer? Or you want the left windows on Windows Explorer to show your word document?

    Right click on the item. Select properties and then customise folder and change piture.
    That should do it.

    Iv'e just done it to the word docs, in the" my letters" folder click view>thumbnails. And hay presto i have a mini pic of each word doc.

    Just checked why some of my letters display as thumbs of the doc and some do not. This is just a guess but blank word docs are shown as the normal icon. Letters created using the letter templates in office show as a mini view of that doc. IE if you use elegant or contempary templates.
