How To Clean Up Windows Thumbnail Cache Quick & Easy

by Rohit Khurana on June 30, 2011


Windows 7 has come up with great features and is really loved by its users. But, still there are some limitations which the user really wants to be removed. One of such limitation is related to the thumbnail cache. As we all know that, Windows 7 shows thumbnails for all the images or pictures that are stored in hard disk of the system and you might know that all these thumbnails are cached for each and every image. Although you may clean up this cache with the option that is provided by Windows 7, but that method is bit complex.

So, in order to make this task easy, one of the newly launched applications is available as a freeware tool. Thumbnail Control is the small, easy to use and powerful application that provides you with a much easier way to clear this thumbnail cache. As said it is basically a freeware tool which is portable as well. It provides the user with an option to clear thumbnail cache for any particular folder and on the other hand the user can also perform this operation for all the drives in Windows.



As shown in the snapshot, you may select the drives which you want to be cleaned. You may select any number of drives out of the available on your hard disk. You may observe that as soon as you select any drive, the tool will start scanning all the folders and the files present under tat drive. After scanning it will clear the thumbnail cache for that complete drive. As it completes the cleaning part, it will show you the total space that has been regained after that cleaning operation of the thumbnail cache.


As, you may see in the above snapshot, after cleaning up the whole disk it shows the total space which has been saved and also the total number of folders that it has searched for completing this task. As we are giving the complete disk for cleaning in the same way we can also give the path of some folders by clicking on add path button provided in the same window. The same operations will be performed for only those files which will be located under that folder.  Thumbnail Control is a very small and yet powerful cleaner application which allows you to easily control over the thumbnail cache of your system. You can just download this application from the below given link and try it out by simply installing it.
