Nautilus image browsing thumbnails too small

Postby Punchy71 on Tue Nov 27, 2012 5:52 pm

In Nautilus when I'm browsing my image files, how do I make the thumbnail preview images larger? Or for that matter, the folders themselves are kind of on the small side too.

Thank you

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I'm not on MATE but I believe in Nautilus in the top right hand corner there is a percentage button, if you use this you can make them bigger or smaller.

I'm using Cinnamon. I don't know if that makes any difference or not...

Nautilus is Nautilus no matter what UI it is running in. If you click edit then preferences you can set the default preferences that you like.
ctrl+1, 2, and 3 keys toggle the window view, and ctrl+ +, or - adjust the zoom. ctrl+ 0 resets the zoom to default.

The real fast way...

Hold down 'ctrl' on your keyboard and roll your mouse wheel.
