Start Windows Explorer in Thumbnails view

Is there a way (command line switch) to open Windows Explorer and set the
view to Thumbnails?

Thanks,

Tim

Tim,

I doubt it. You might want to look at automating it, but your best bet
would probably be to send messages to explorer to change the view
(specifically, the listview in explorer).

Hi Nicholas,
>I doubt it. You might want to look at automating it, but your best bet

SendMessage is very powerfull, thats true, we can nearly do anything
with it, but does it work in this case. Did you check it? I am curious
about it,...
Regards

Kerem

Kerem,

I didn't check it, which is why I said "probably". I'm leaving that as
an exercise to the OP. Specifically, I would look at the documentation for
the list view windows control, specifically, the windows message reference.
