I am working on Windows 10 and Bridge is version 8.0.1.282

the media files show well. but the folders are tiny, with no preview of the files within them, and this makes bridge less easy to use than the regular file explorer.

is there a fix?

Thanks

Hi Iris,

There is a slider in the status bar (bottom right) to increase the size — it will increase both the thumbnails and the folders.

To see the items in the folders, you can either open a folder or go to View > Show Items from Subfolders. This is a toggle, so you can turn it back off again.

Thanks for the response Jane,

however, as you can see in the photo that i have attached, the slider is up, the media thumbnails are large but the folder thumbnails remain small.

maybe on Mac its different but Im on PC.

As for the "show items from subfolders", it isnt what i meant (although its a very useful feature!) what i meant was that, like in windows explorer, when u look at a folder thumbnails u can see previews of the files within it too.

Folder thumbs do not change size, and Bridge doesn't have a folder preview or custom icon feature.

I am positive it used to be a feature in earlier versions of Adobe Bridge. While it is under review, can you explore the ability to adjust the size of the folders separately from the files? Because that kind of fine tuning would be amazing!

That will be great,

and here is a photo demonstrating what i wish it would look like: (the same as in windows explorer, so one can see briefly what the folders include)

I don't find that helpful on either platform. The preview is always random and depends on what formats can be read and have a preview.

I find it highly useful and I'll explain how i started using it, to help me sort through my folders.

i have many folders containing transitions. but whenever i had to look at them, i had to read the text to see what each folder contains, which was annoying. and you are right about windows choosing the preview files randomly, so at first it is totally useless, such as in this photo:

Capture.JPG

having a visual representation would have been much simpler and thats what i wanted.

i tried changing the folder icon picture itself but this doesnt work well at all in windows 10.

so what i did what create a special jpg in each folder that would function as a preview, and to force windows to display that jpg i stuck all other files in a subfolder.

so yeah that took a little bit of work but its extremely easy on the eyes now and i instantly recognize which folder contains which transitions. having the ability to see this display in Bridge too would be something very useful, and quite in accord with what bridge isset to offer a visual design professional

I, too, would like this feature, and it would make my workflow a bit easier and speed things up a little bit every day.

I would like this feature as well. ACDSEE shows folder previews and its easier for me quickly see what may be in that folder at a glance without having to enter it. This is useful for sets of photos from a single photoshoot.

This should have been address years ago. It is why I don't use bridge unless I am on my Mac.

It really frustrates me that Bridge doesn't have this option! I love seeing the preview of what's in my folders. It's the number one reason I don't use Bridge as much as I want to, and when I do have I have to use Bridge and Windows file explorer to find what I am looking for. Please please please add this feature to Bridge!!!

@Abhishek.Seth PLEASE make this feature happen. It's basically my deciding factor of whether I use Bridge or not.

Solution: do not use bridge, use SageThumbs

I used Bridge for a long time, only to see the PSD thumbnails, cuz Adobe removed the support to see the psds in windows x,/7/8/10 for some reason....
