Disable Thumbnail Caching




Explorer displays a thumbnail of images and the first frame of the video when seen in thumbnail view Explorer can either cache when you access the folder OR retrieve from the Thumbnail Cache. Retrieving from the cache is faster as compared to creating new one but will consume lot of hard disk space.

Navigate to:
HCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advance

Set the DWORD value DisableThumbnailCache to 1 to disable the Thumbnail Cache

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
