Hello Kit, >Look in Tools menu- Folder Options - View and see if you can solve it >from there? I've done that in the past, and it seems to work partially, meaning that some folders still pop up with thumbnails for some reason, and it doesn't stay the way I set it, it starts thumbnailing again seemingly "out of the blue (although there must be some reason). >I also hate hate the slowness of a search. Yes! Me too, incredibly, ridiculously slow isn't it? And I have a pretty speedy computer, too. > I believe it goes to the net >and that causes the slowness. Well, I have a broadband cable connection (512K/128K) and it still takes *a minute or more* to return any results from nearly any search, when I can get it to return results at all (see my message to Spider about that).
