In File Manager PCManFM, when I open a folder with pictures, I can only see the icon that represents a picture file.

I would like to be able to see the icons of the pictures as those pictures themselves. Otherwise, I have to open the pictures in image viewer and flip through all photos in order to find the one I'm looking for, or to know which photo is which.

I have tried and tried, and searched for the answer here before asking this.

How would I do this?


Go under Edit --> Preferences --> Display, and make sure that you have a check mark on Show thumbnails of file. See image below.

It worked for me when I changed the value for

"Do not generate thumbnails for files exceeding this size:" to 10000 instead of 2048.
