Delete all thumbs.db

Windows creates in every folder with pictures a thumbs.db file.

Linux doesn’t need them, so here is a simple command to get rid of them.

sudo find /home/user -name Thumbs.db -exec rm {} \;

    • When running Windows deleting the thumbs.db will only result in auto recreation of this file. Windows uses this file as a database with information from all the pictures in that folder. When opening a folder with pictures without a thumbs.db Windows will (re)create one.
