Can I make the thumbnails file smaller?

Question: Can I make the thumbnails file smaller?

I frequently use disc cleanup and I would like to know if there is a way to make the job easier in regards to the thumbnails file.

Is there a way to make the size of the thumbnails file smaller so these files don't accumulate as much, or even better, is there a way to have Vista purge these files automatically so I don't have to do the disc cleanup method?

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Can I make the thumbnails file smaller?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi, is there a way if making a mp3 smaller, i have tried winrar and winzip, I realize they do the same thing, but i want to get it under 5mb,so i can email it... thanks.

Answer:make a mp3 file smaller ?

Just open it up in a Audio editor program and save it as another mp3 file, but change the bit variable to something like 192 and that should "compress" it so that it is under 5 megs..

I want to copy a film onto one single-sided dvd , but the file is too large. The mpg file is 4.6 gb , which is just too large for a DVD. I dont mind losing a small bit of quality to save on buying double layered dvd's. I usually use AVSto DVD to creat my mpg files from AVI, then IMGBurn to copy to DVD. I think DVD shrink may help ? But not sure how to create the right type of file ?

I've downloaded a movie that I want to watch on my TV, but I can't write it to the DVD because it's too large. It is 6.90 GB, but I need it to be 4.5 at most. When downloading the movie, I got many .rar files that I had to extract. Is there any way I can split the extracted movie into 2 parts, so I can write one half on one DVD and the other on another DVD, or do anything with it, so it fits on the disk. I am using KMPlayer and VLC media player if that helps. The file is 1:51:01 hours long. (1hour 51mins and 1 second )
Don't ask me why I downloaded such a large file. It's because I couldn't find the movie anywhere else and had to download the huge one.
Thank you
P.S. I don't want to download any extra software.
P.P.S. It was originally a .mkv file, but is it ok, if I renamed it into .avi, because that is the format I always write the movies onto DVDs in. Will an mkv file still work on the TV, or will I need to change it to .avi?

Answer:How to make an avi file smaller?

There's no easy way to make it smaller unless you convert it to another format, they're already compressed.

My PDF file is 1500kb, how can I reduce it to 500kb?

Answer:Make PDF file smaller? How?

The easiest way to shrink the file size of a PDF in Acrobat 8 is to click on Document > Reduce File Size. For the compatibly setting I would recommend Acrobat 6 and later. The higher compatibility setting you choose, the smaller the file size will be. The downside of choosing a high compatibility setting is that people with older versions of Acrobat will not be able to open the document. For that reason, Acrobat 6 and later is usually a safe bet.

Hi folks, I am trying to conserve browser real-estate on my (very small) monitor. I've combined my Menu bar with my address bar (location bar, whatever they call it), but the "go back one page" arrow (see JPG) is too big: the height of the entire address bar seems to be defined by that icon. I can't figure out how to change its size. I don't want a bigger icon, which is what most ppl seem to be asking for when questions around address-bar icons come up - I want a smaller one! (I don't think the combination of the address + menu bar is related to this issue, actually; just explaining my current set-up. That is, if you look for how to reduce icon-size, it shouldn't matter where the bar is located. Also, the size-discrepancy just bugs me.)

We'll need to test this in a VM to see how it goes but making more tiles double-large is what I wanted to do too (but for standard programs).

Answer:Windows 7 Backup anyway to make it smaller?

There are a number of ways. If you have another drive You can copy all your data (not programmes). I use Freefilesynch and do this often. It will use the same as the amount of data, and in my case I have it all on a separate partition. For the system (C:/ drive - Windows & and all other programmes) I recommend a free programme : Macrium Reflect. Make an Image and it will compress the back up. You can even choose a higher compression. If your drive is not partitioned it will still work.

use a compression utility like winzip or winrar,winace,and so on,it will compress 1 or more files (pics,tunes,films,)and put it all in one file.it makes sending and recieving over network mach faster and easyer.hope that helped.

I am unable to resize the Task Bar. Auto-Hide does not function. When in portrait mode, the Task Bar takes nearly a third of the screen. If I am successful (and that is not always the case) at moving the Task Bar to either side, the effective screen area is reduced. I have played with Auto Hide the Task Bar; it does not ever "hide".
Even after I turn off all notifications & icons, it is still too big.
It appears that the notification buttons are crowded to one side, pushing up the height of the task bar.
This WAS NOT a problem in WIN 8.1. I am no novice with Windows. I cannot figure this out. I am angry beyond belief.
It dawns me again why non-tech types are drawn to iPAD & iPHONE: IT ALWAYS WORKS. No fussing around with a "bizzillion" settings.
For the time being, I have put on hold any plans to update either of my laptops, one on Win 7 and one on Win 8.1.

Lenovo, When will you make a smaller ThinkPad Yoga, or add Wacom pennable option to your Yoga Pro line? The past few years I've been endlessly chasing the perfect laptop/tablet hybrid. I've owned a Surface Pro 2, 1st Gen ThinkPad Helix (boy you guys sure messed up when it came to thermal design), Surface Pro 3, Toshiba Z10t, and now, the 1st Gen ThinkPad Yoga. I've come to realize, even though I am a tablet first, laptop second guy, that I truly appreciate a good keyboard always at the ready.  I take notes religiously at school, so a good pennable (preferably standard Wacom) digitizer is preferred. The only thing keeping this ThinkPad Yoga from being absolutely perfect is the size. For me, it is a bit too big. Please offer a smaller ThinkPad Yoga or add digitizer support to your smaller Yoga Pro. A ThinkPad Yoga line that includes 10.8"/11.6"/12.5"/14" options would really round out the line and offer the best that a laptop/tablet hybrid has to offer. After ripping and flipping and storing subpar keyboard docks away from the tablet when in use, I've just come to realize you hit the nail on the head with the yoga designs. Refine it and add more options. Super thin ThinkPad Yoga in a smaller size would truly be the ultimate note-taking machine for business and school. 

Answer:Please make a smaller ThinkPad Yoga

I recently bought a scanner to create documents to send on the internet. The scanner works fine, but the files are rather large. One small page can be 350 k, while I've received a high quality document with over a dozen pages and a size of only 140 k.
I presume the problem is my model, which is canon canoscan lide 100. It works, and it is cheap, but do I need a more expensive model to make pdf files both small and high quality? My wife and I have been all over the present settings, and we cannot seem to improve things. For example, we can make shrink a single page small document from 350 k to 200 k but it becomes almost unreadable.

Quick question:

I use excel to view large sheets of data and the first thing I always have to do is shrink the percentage to 80 percent, so I don't have to scroll as much, etc.

I realized it would be a lot easier if I could just tell Excel to open ALL sheets at 80 percent, so I don't have to make that change myself. But I can't figure out how to do that exactly and I was wondering if it's even possible?

If it is, I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could show me how.

Thanks in advance,

Snaithbert
 

Answer:Make excel open at a smaller percentage?

I got this from this site here. I myself use CTRL and roll the scroll wheel to zoom in and out in the workbooks personally.

Workbook Defaults
Can Excel be set up so that every new workbook created in Excel would start with certain formatting characteristics? It can be done. To create a workbook template for new workbooks:

1. Create a workbook that contains the sheets, default text (such as page headers and column and row labels), formulas, macros, styles, zoom percentage, and other formatting you want in new workbooks that you base on the template.
2. On the File menu, click Save As.
3. In the Save as type box, click Template (*.xlt).
4. In the Save in box, select the folder where you want to store the template.
5. To create the default workbook template, select the XLStart folder in the Microsoft Excel folder. (You'll probably find the XLStart folder in c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\office\ )
6. In the File name box, type BOOK to create a default workbook template.

Hi,

just bought an dell xps 1330 with 200gb harddrive. I want to allocate, say, 30gb for vista and program files, then make a new partition for data. I realise that vista now can shrink partitions, and approximates some of the functionality of partition magic etc on xp. The problem is that vista wont let me shrink the c: to less than 80gb. The whole reason for shrinking is then to image the drive once every week or so for imaging, so I really just want the programs etc on the c: partition, and 80gb is too big.

Can anyone help me to fix this? I've looked around and cant see that 3rd party partitioning apps are currently supporting vista.

Thanks,

Toby.

I know this might sound stupid..... mostly because to a certain extent, it is...

I mapped my google drive to my HDDs list using CMD. Worked great (short of the locked permissions logo in the bottom left of all the folders despite having ownership of the folder but thats O.K. for now!). The problem is that because its not really its own drive and is part of my C:\ drive, it thinks that it is almost a Tb large. I don't suppose there is a way to fake the actual drive size in windows, at all? I don't like memory patchers for these sorts of things... just one more service to deal with. Perhaps, is there a way to adjust it in the registry? or something? I don't exactly want the bar gone all together, because it is useful, I am just too OC to look at it and see the wrong denominator value...

Thanks for the help

Answer:how can I make images smaller to for web sites? (front page2002)

there's a couple of ways

you can reduce the dimensions
ie 640x400 down to 320x200

you can reduce the compression
not familar with your app but some/most have either a dpi setting or a good/better/best or low/medium/high type of setting which will effect the file size

or you can do both
-> reduce the dimensions and the dpi/quality

likely have to experiment to get the right mix, the trade off is picture quality and viewer enjoyment along with time to load etc

(LOL - and throw in screen size too - 4 pics 200 wide fits fine on 1024 screen, but not on 800)
