    Up until recently when I had a folder open it would show the file icons as the file (i.e. a thumbnail of a picture would be the icon of the jpg file). Now it shows the preview icon, the program it would use to access the file. How do I set it back to show the thumbnails? Thanks in advance.

    While viewing a folder in Finder, go to View->Show View Options (or right-click in the file list area). On the dialog box that appears, make sure "Show icon preview" is checked.

    That's how my settings are set up, but I still have a Preview icon instead of a small thumbnail of the pic. Any other thoughts?
