Specs: Windows XP
Hi,

I share a PC with my family and each of us has our own log-in screen. When I open the My Computer icon, I see that the folders and drives are missing their names. They're all under thumbnails with no names but they appear when I use list, Icon, Tiles, Details. I just don't know what could be causing the problem. If anyone knows how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

Justin =)

Thumbnail view will show just that, thumbnails of graphics. If you want to reset the folder view so they're all the same, change the setting to what you want, then click "Apply to all folders."

Justin, If you want the drive or file names to appear in Thumbnail view just hold the shift key down on your keyboard then open My Computer. The link below explains it.
