Thumbnail Preview removal

Issues with installing under all versions of MS Windows

Thumbnail Preview removal

Postby Tradition » Thu Jan 20, 2011 10:18 pm


I have Windows 7 and OpenOffice 3.2.1. I would like to now if it is possible to disable icon thumbnail preview for OOo document content. I would like just the regular icon on all icon sizes without the document preview. Windows 7 can only either disable all or enable all thumbnail previews, but then I lose image previews, which is a no go. It's funny because Calc documents are always no preview icons, but Writer documents have the preview. Is there an option inside OOo to disable thumbnail previews?

Thank you for your help!

Reinstall OOo, choose a Custom installation and deselect the "Windows Explorer Extension" Optional Component.
