    The Windows Thumbnail control is used to show image thumbnails and internet shortcuts.

    See Microsoft for more information on the Thumbnail control.

    My sample application 'Easy-Favorite' uses the thumbnail control to show a thumnail of any web page. If you want to add your favorite internet link (URL) to Easy-Favorite, just drag & drop the URL from Internet Exporer or Netscape onto Easy-Favorite. So Easy!

    The sample application Easy-Favorite contains...

    • OLE Drag & Drop
    • ThumbCtl Control
    • How to insert CFormView derived class to Dialog based program
    • Create Short-Cut

    I think this article is very useful for shell program developers or IE developers. Any questions - send an email to me!
