Viewing pictures in file manager
« on: April 25, 2014, 07:36:13 pm »
When I open a folder of jpg's in Mint or Peppermint I only see the file type is there a way of seeing a small thumbnail?

Hi Toonman

Not 100% sure about Mint but in peppermint while in the directory your pictures are stored select "Edit>Preferences, under the "General" tab you will see "View Mode" click to show the drop down menu select "Thumbnail View".

Depending on the size of your files you may have to increase the minimum file size to generate thumbnails this can be done by selecting the Display tab on the left pane, look for "Do not generate thumbnails exceeding this size" and increase the minimum file size accordingly


Good luck

Ignore the bit about installing anything .. just see if the settings preferences are as described here:
