What Is Thumbs.db And How To Get Rid Of It?

One of the stuff that pulls my time is this file named THUMBS.DB Every time I had to delete it when I use to burn something on C.D. Even if there were lots of files.

Thumbs.db is a hidden file generated automatically by Windows, you will see it in many folders if you have set the "Show hidden files and folders" option in the "Folder Options" window on. All about this file and how to remove it:

  1. Open any folder and click Tools > Folder Options.
  2. Click the View tab from the Folder Options window.
  3. In the Advanced Settings check "Do not cache thumbnails". 

You can choose "Show hidden files and folders", search for Thumbs.db files and delete them all, using the previous steps windows will not generate it again.
