Makes Explorer show a thumbnail version of bitmaps files in the current folder rather than the generic icon ordinarily used. This is a great way to preview .BMP files without having to open them first.
Find the key below and modify the value of (Default) to equal '%1'.

Key: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Paint.Picture\DefaultIcon]
Value Name: (Default)
Data Type: REG_SZ
Data: %1
