    Windows 7 with CS4 and PSD Icons

    Ricky-T Community Member

      Hi,

      I have Windows 7 64bit, Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop 7 (for back-up).

      I know that Photoshop 7 allowed thumbnail previews on PSD's but that was taken out so CS4 is just a custom icon, but Windows 7 doesn't seem to really get what to do with either of them, and you can't force a certian icon on a certian file type like you could in XP because Microsoft basically got rid of the ability to do so now.

      The attatched image shows two PSD's in the same folder, one with a defaul windows "unknown" file icon, but with photoshops logo on it to represent what it will open it with anyway, and the other has a preivew although it has never been opened in PS7 (both fully created in CS4, nothing else). For the sake of organisation, is there a way to either get them all to be previews of thumbnails or all one generic icon (preferably not the one it has made it from windows).

      Thanks,

      Ricky
