I don't think there's a way to do this, but I am hoping that there is someone here that knows a way! :)

I have all my digital camera photos stored on my external hard drive in folders relating to the event (such as Christmas 08, Holidays 07). There was one photo I needed to find to send via email, but it was really hard as all the file names were numbers. So, I turned thumbnails on so I could see it... but, it takes so long for the thumbnails to generate that I had to scroll down a page at a time, then wait 20 seconds, then scroll some more just so that I could see them.

Is there a way I can tell Windows to generate thumbnails for all of the images in my photo directory? This would mean I can quickly scroll without having to generate them all by slowly scrolling through them.

Try adding that directory to the indexing pile. That might work.
