Thumbnail previews not displayed in Windows Explorer

Posted on October 18, 2012

I recently ran into an issue with picture thumbnails not working; a preview of the picture would not display, only the picture icon would be shown.

This solution worked for me.

To enable the thumbnail view:

  1. Open My Computer
  2. Press the ALT button on your keyboard
  3. Select the Tools menu
  4. Select Folder Options
  5. Click the View tab.
  6. At the top, if it’s checked off, uncheck the following option: Always show icons, never thumbnails
  7. Click Apply
  8. Click OK

Your thumbnails should now be displayed.

  1. Dude, I can see it now: Paul M. Jones, known PHP Stud, convinces Micro$oft to stop all protucdion of their web technologies and convert all existing .NET applications to PHP effective immediately. Give em hell PJ. We got your back.
