Default How to enlarge Thumbnail View in XP Windows Explorer

I have many drawings that are not quite large enough to see in Thumbnail View.
Is there a way (besides changing screen resolution) to enlarge these thumbnails?

Thanks,
Gary

You could change the file view in Windows Explorer itself, to Medium, Large or Extra Large icons.

Paul,
Thanks for the reply, but I am not seeing the options you mention in Windows Explorer, View. I only see: Thumbnails, Tiles, Icons, Lists, and Details. I looked in Folder Options as well, and didn't find anything.

What might I be overlooking?

Thanks,
Gary

Sorry, my bad - the larger views weren't introduced until Vista.
