windows explorer is not displaying thumbnails ( as it was earlier) instead it is showing default program icon RRS feed

  • Question

    Hi have been reading the blog for two hours now and I am no closer to a "fix" for this for  our network users. All users on the SOE build now cannot view  or preview image files in windows explorer it is showing just the default icon for all images files in a folder in Windows Explorer. Is ther a permanent fix to this problem that we can add to out SOE build or to the a windows update that Mircosoft has released?

  • Hi,

    Here're two settings we need to check:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Folder Options, under "View" tab, untick "Always show icons, never thumbnails "

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System, in the left panel, click "Advanced System Settings", then under "Performance" tab, click "Settings", under "Visual Effects" tab\Custom, find "Show thumbnails instead of icons", tick it.
