samhor, To turn off filenames, hold down the Shift key when you click to open a folder in Windows Explorer or when you switch into thumbnail view. This will turn off the file names, giving more space for the thumbnails. Doing it again turns them back on.

samhor, Go to the folder that contains the thumbnails then hold your shift key down and open the folder. the file names should then appear.

Maybe this explains it better.

Go into the folder and set the View to Thumbnails then hold the Shift key down and click on the View button and select Details.
Remove your finger from the Shift key. You should now see file names.
Hold the Shift key down and click on the View button and select Thumbnails.
You should now see thumbnails with file names under them.

Holding the shift key down usually toggles between folder/file names and no folder/file names.

"Do u no much about windows live mail".

I don't know anything about it as I never used it. If you have a problem with it you should start a new thread.
