So we LIVE in detail view in my office.

And today I was trying to move around pdf files and kept getting that.  Well turns out it’s a bit of a feature or bug depending on how you look at it.

So let’s see what this has as an impact…

User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\ –

“Turn off the display of thumbnails and only display icons on network folders”

Build a new GPO

Now edit it

I think I’m going to disable the Turn off the caching of thumbnails in hidden thumbs.db files

Turns off the caching of thumbnails in hidden thumbs.db files.

This policy setting allows you to configure Windows Explorer to cache thumbnails of items residing in network folders in hidden thumbs.db files.

If you enable this policy setting, Windows Explorer does not create, read from, or write to thumbs.db files.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Windows Explorer creates, reads from, and writes to thumbs.db files.
