  • Is the issue that the picture files cannot be previewed with thumbnails in Large Icons and Medium Icons view in Windows Explorer?


    If this is the situation, try the following suggestions and see if the issue can be resolved:


    1.     Right click "Computer"

    2.     go to Properties

    3.     go to Advanced System Settings to bring up the System Properties

    4.     go to Performance and select Settings

    5.     Make sure "Show thumbnails instead of icons" is checked.


    If the issue persists:


    1.     Open Control Panel

    2.     Choose Folder Options

    3.     Click the Views tab

    4.     Uncheck "Always show Icons, never thumbnails"

    5.     Uncheck "Display file icon on thumbnails"

    6.     Click Reset Folders button.


    However, if the issue still exists, let's reload the thumbnail cache by the steps below:


    1.     Go to Start, type Disk Cleanup in to the Search box and then press Enter.

    2.     Check "Thumbnails" and then click OK.

    3.     Click "Delete Files" button.


    Hope this helps.
