Yes, which is why thumbnail view is useless now as everything is in subfolders.
The old xnview was good to use folders in the outside one.

If you see this folder structure

A
-B
--a.jpg etc
-C
--a.jpg etc
-D
--a.jpg etc



Then inside A you would see folders B-D with 4 thumbnails inside
Then outside A you would see A containing 3 thumbnails inside which are the folders B-D shrunk

But in any case can you save me, my whole folder is empty like this.
I have separated in to years. Each year has 50-60 folders all empty icon and I have to try to find the worlds in tiny text. It's not useful.

Even if you just show the 1st jpg inside any sub folder

Whether it shows 4 inside, or just 1 it doesn't matter

OK Fine. In any case, can you ever, ever, consider this for MP? It's very frustrating.

I can't find anything with a screen full of empty folders and tiny text. I just resort to searching for everything which is slow and doesn't help greatly because it doesn't take me to the folder.
