If you’ve recently made the jump to Windows 8 and you’re puzzled over the seemingly limited thumbnail size choices, read on as we highlight how to get extra large thumbnails back (and some very handy keyboard shortcuts that give you access to a whopping 45 thumbnail size choices).

There was a view in Windows XP, I think it was called filmstrip view (an example found here), where the selected picture filled about 90% of the screen and along the bottom was the thumbnails in a single line of all the pictures in the folder. That view has been missing (or moved) since Windows 7, and wasn't one of the 45 thumbnail sizes.

It's been a long time since I've see that view, you're right! It would seem that after XP the functionality was migrated into the "Slideshow" view and then, in Windows 8, migrated into the default photo viewer. Although in the migrated versions it's not quite the same.
