I cannot see large thumbnails when posting

Brand new user here. When I try to post a photo in email or twitter the folder does not allow me to see large thumbnails. I cant see the one I am looking for. Is there a setting I missed? There is an option to show "show in file manager" but cant send it from there.

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:
I edited the thread title for clarification.

Please tell us which version of Zorin you are using.
Better yet, please add this information to your profile following this tutorial:

Done. Thank you.


Open nautilus and then "Preferences" then "Search and Preview" and look down to "Thumbnails" - You will see a Drop Down menu for "only for files smaller than..." Increase that to be greater in size than the size of the thumbnails you wish a preview of to show in the file manager.


That worked for previewing in file manager but not for posting in email or twitter or other media.

These would be dependent on the email, twitter or media- or on the Web Browser. That is not a Zorin OS setting.
