Thumbnails views in Windows Explorer

    Anyone know if having a lot of folders with defaults of thumbnail views in
    Windows Explorer uses up any more resources than just lists, or details, or
    icons? I run a number of websites and I like to leave these folders so they open
    to thumbnails as it's easier to quickly find graphics, but I don't want to slow
    down the machine. I'm running Windows XP on a 3.2Ghz system with 2Gb RAM.
    Thanks.

    It is a bit slower but your machine is so fast it shouldn't be a concern.

    Unless you can acutely sense milliseconds or centiseconds.

    Better buy an extra stick of RAM just to be safe...
