The answer to this is _supposed_ to be via the Tools>Folder Options>Apply 
to all Folders (after setting the present one the way you want). But it 
doesn't work for me either in the darned file *requesters* which is driving 
me crazy. I'd settle for a solution that would simply disable ALL 
thumbnails, and I suspect it can be done via command line but I'm not sure 
exactly how.
