Thanks but that was NO help but I may have stumbled upon the problem...I read somewhere today that Microsoft told Google to remove their google new tab page [thumbnails]...from IE?  So It is no longer available unless you use Firefox....or Google's New browser?

Re: HOW do I restore the ICON thumbnails on the new tab page genesis157 5/26/10 3:26 PM
I KNOW...to say I'm full of rage is an understatement lol.  I can't understand why companies make changes so quickly without notification or an option to keep what SO MANY of us have come to use DAILY and LOVE.  I spent AT LEAST 16 hours yesterday trying to wrap my head around it and I still can't rest lol.  I have downloaded the new Google Chrome browser which does have the thumbnails but only 8...and the browser is OK but there are certain apps and parameters that IE has that the Chrome browser and the Firefox browser does not...so pick your poison.  I got acquainted with the Chrome browser last night and I'm torn between IE and chrome... I just can't see why IE does not create an IDENTICALE new page tab [with thumbnails]...or give us an option to use IE with google chrome.  I scoured the web last night and found more than a few web pages where so many others have posted their disappointment...maybe they'll come to their senses lol :)

Re: HOW do I restore the ICON thumbnails on the new tab page Juan Pedro 10/6/10 6:47 PM
Here is a way to solve it on Chrome 7.0.544.0 dev.

On the "New tab" page go to Wrench --> Tools --> Developer Tools.

And you will see the "Most visited" bar collapsed... but you can expanded and that's it!
It's back!

Hope it works for you.

I can't find any 'most visited bar' in the developer tools, and there is no 'down arrow on the right hand side of 'new tab' where there's a drop down box which gives you the option to 'restore thumbnails'..

I see the "Most visited" bar without even going into developer tools, but there's no way to expand it!  I want my thumbnails back, not a bar.
Re: HOW do I restore the ICON thumbnails on the new tab page Skyfire23 10/23/10 11:25 AM
I figured it out.  If you click on the "Most visited" bar, it'll pop back up into the main page, and then the arrow appears.

Re: HOW do I restore the ICON thumbnails on the new tab page DPvirginia 11/10/10 6:05 AM
Thanks!  Clicking the narrow line next to "Most Visited" worked.  The thumbnails are overlapping, though.  I cannot move them into alignment manually and I cannot find a feature to "arrange" or resize them.
Re: HOW do I restore the ICON thumbnails on the new tab page WSW1989 11/17/10 8:09 AM
Yes! I have solved this issue thanks to DPvirginia's answer! For your information, I'm using Windows 7 x64bit.

As DPvirginia said, click the narrow line that is displayed next to the "Most visited" title.

But for me, it's clicking at the area at the end of the narrow line that restored all my thumbnails : )

If you noticed, the "Most visited" narrow line is shorter compared to the "Recently closed" narrow line. This mean the narrow line area has some function that will restore all your removed thumbnails (my opinion only). Play around the narrow line if you don't understand what I'm saying. I also draw it out here;

(arrow) Most visited --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (click this area)

8 Thumbnails

           Recently closed --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks, and good luck :)

Re: HOW do I restore the ICON thumbnails on the new tab page mreyeexppert 1/26/11 11:15 PM
OK people

you can pass this around

Definitive answer

in new tab window click the little triangle next to the "most visited" piece of text

this hides and unhides the thumbnails

Hope this helps
