I have 3 PDF files stored on my desktop; they've been there for months. I use the newest version of Foxit Reader and have for years. In the middle of last week the icons for those 3 files changed from the generic PDF file page icon to mini thumbnails of the pages themselves. I did nothing that I can recall that would have caused this change. My IT genius said that this was default behavior for Windows 7 (HP, SP1 64-bit) but I'm wondering why the transformations occurred only recently. Yesterday I had to do a system restoration to undo some damage done by a program installation and when all was said and done the icons have reverted to the original "PDF" file page. My question is: did I witness a normal behavior for this version of Windows 7 or might the mini-thumbnail icons be related to Foxit Reader itself (which is the same version that was in place before the transformation to mini-thumbs).
