Preview Pane Icon problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I have a problem with preview pane icon in win7 ENTERPRIZE. I cannot see any preview pane icon in windows explorer. I have googled for the problem but no luck. In fact, there is no option in view tab or organize menu to activate the feature. So, I assume it is not installed or has been deleted for some reasons! I have also checked the Registry to find if there are records of the Icon but no luck there either. 

    Any ideas how I can reinstall it, or turn it on?

  • Hi Fan,

    Preview pane is a button located on top right corner of of Win explorer page where you have shown the "Change your view" button. When this this feature is on the user is able to preview documents (doc. PDF, etc) without penning them.

    What you have shown is only to change the size and not for previewing the documents.
