Clear Filenames in Thumbnail View - Windows Tip

Ok! Here's another nice little unknown (at least unknown to me!) feature in Windows. You can hide the names of files in a folder when viewing them as thumbnails! How many of you knew about that?

Still not sure? Just check out the difference in both the images below...
[If you cannot see the images, click here..Pic1, Pic2]

In the second picture, the names of all the files in the folder aren't shown. How to do it?
It's easy. Press and hold the SHIFT key and then click the Thumbnails option of the View button.
Note: This only works when you want to view files in thumbnail view. Tested in Windows XP.
