Toggle Display of Filenames in Thumbnail View

Would you like to turn filenames off to make more space for thumbnails? Did your thumbnail view unexpectedly stop displaying filenames?

Toggle the display of thumbnail filenames by pressing the shift key when you open a folder or when you switch into thumbnail view.

    Who on earth thought it was a good idea to put this hidden feature in windows without putting a way to turn it on/off in the options menu? Thanks for the help.

    Excellent.. Why micro$oft would even make this work this way is totally asinine. It should be a folder setting, not an unlisted and mostly unknown key combo.
