Software Product Description

As you use your computer and create files and folders, their thumbnail images will pile up on your drives. However, you may not even be aware of them because they are stored in hidden archives. The files are preview images that make it easy for Microsoft operating systems to open folders. All the current Microsoft operating systems store the preview files in the Thumbs.db format.

The operating systems store the thumbs whenever users view folders as thumbnails via Windows Explorer. Unfortunately, the systems do not remove the files automatically, which means computers gather thousands of the files stored in different parts of the hard drives. More often than not, users are not aware of the existence of such loads on their computers.

So, how do you remove thumbs.db files that you do not even see?

This is where Thumbs Remover comes in handy. The program searches both internal and external hard drives for Thumbs.db files. You can also use it to search for the files in flash drives or selected folders. It then displays the files found so you can browse them if you want. You can then select the ones you want to delete.

If you are using Windows XP, 8 or 8.1, you can also use Thumbs Remover to prevent your operating system from creating the files in both remote and local folders. If you are using Windows Vista, 7 or 10, then you can use it to stop the process in remote folders.

You can integrate Thumbs Remover into the Windows Explorer context menu.

Requires: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.
