I want to open Windows Explorer from the the command prompt, and displaying the contents as thumbnails. The first part of this is easy:

explorer, dirname

How do I programmatically change the folder view?

I think changing the view would need some registry edit.
Options for explorer.exe are listed here and here.

Thanks. I don't suppose you have any idea which registry values need editing, do you? – Richard Cotton Aug 24 '10 at 12:19
