Get Rid Of Those Thumbs.db Files

Lifehacker has pointed out a good tweak for all of those people who hate the “Thumbs.db” file that shows up in folders that contain pictures. This file is used to cache thumbnails of the images so that when you view a folder with a large number of pictures you don’t have to wait as long for the thumbnails to load.




For those people with fast computers then you shouldn’t notice that much of a delay by disabling the file creation. It is really easy to do it:

  1. Goto Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View and check the option that says “Do not cache thumbnails”.

Now you can go through and delete all of those pesky Thumbs.db files cluttering up your folders!
