    Specs:
    MacBook,white 2.16ghz C2D/2GB RAM/120GB, iPOD 60GB
    how to thumbnail view
    How do I activate the thumbnail view in the finder (i think that's what it's called...the my computer counterpart in MacOSX)? I have a folder with jpegs in it and wanted to be able to see them in thumbnail. the options are only: icon, list , and the other one (kinda like cascading type as you open folders).

    I'm a recent switcher and in my windows PC jpegs and pngs and be viewed as thumbnails.

    Thanks (^_^)

    Go to a folder.
    Set it to Icon View, if it isn't already.
    Then do View > Show View Options (it's also in the context/right-click menu, and also, keyboard shortcut: Cmd J)
    Check "Show icon preview"
    Increase the Icon Size as needed. (the Windows XP Thumbnail view's icon size is 96 x 96)


    side note:
    In Windows, the folders and the Desktop (which is called the Finder in Mac OS X) is called "Windows Explorer" or "explorer.exe"
