I always access my documents as well as media files through Windows Explorer and I like to use thumbnail images as it helps me to organize files visually so that I can see them and locate them quickly.
I have noticed that unlike PDF, I cannot create thumbnail images in ADE, which is very annoying. I get these thumbnails of the book covers that I would like to use as the thumbnail image but it seems impossible. I get that ugly orange and black thumbnail image, which makes all my ADE files look identical in Windows Explorer and makes it a chore to locate an ADE file.
Is it possible to fix this so that I can use the cover as my thumbnail image, so it can be seen in Windows Explorer? I've seen many complaints online and there still seems to be no fix other than writing code, which I really don't want to do as I am not expert at it.
Please please, for those of use who like ebooks and Windows Explorer, please fix this!
This does not seem to be related to Digital Editions, and is rather a behavior of the .ePub and .acsm files since you wish to customize how they appear in Windows Explorer.
From what I have observed, almost all eBooks do appear in the Adobe Digital Editions Library with their thumbnail.
Thanks for your response.
I was trying to customize the thumbnail image so that I can utilize that thumbnail images from each book cover.
I have a folder full of those images but seem unable to use them. Instead I get the hideous orange & black generic ADE thumbnail. Too bad, I wish someone would fix this.
Unfortunately, I may have to use another e-book management system.
