Check out Image.GetThumbnailImage.

(Took all of about two seconds to search MSDN for this.)


Do you know what _arbitrary_ means? Search MSDN for the meaning ;)

I want thumbnails for ANY type of files, from which Explorer is able to get one.

Try the info provided here.

(Ok, this took about 20 minutes to find in MSDN, but still...)

As for arbitrary, I took that to mean "image files from an arbitrary location" as opposed to "arbitrary file types." Sorry about the misinterpretation. (No MSDN search necessary for that one.)
