How to stop those annoying audio previews of audio and video files in Xandros 4



I found the audio preview of of audio and video files to be a real annoyance. Luckily, I stumbled across the solution.



  1. From the launch menu, open Xandros Control Center.
  2. Expand the "General Settings" list, and choose "Desktop".
  3. Click the "File Icons" tab. You will see a list of the various file types, with a checkbox beside each one.
  4. Simply uncheck any file types you do not want Xandros to generate a preview for when you mouse-over the icon.
  5. I unchecked the box for "Sound Files"and "Video Files".
  6. Problem solved!
