    Can't see THUMBNAILS

    When I'm in my Windows folders, I can no longer see thumbnails of pictures,
    just an icon. Not sure if an association was changed by another program???

    My Folder properties are set to "pictures and Videos"...

    Can anyone help me out with this one?

    Hi Brian,

    This will show you how to turn the thumbnails back on in Windows Explorer.

    In Windows Explorer
    Organize - Folder & Search options - View
    uncheck [ ] Always show icons, never thumbnails
    ok

    Please can you help me. I am unable to view PDF files as thumbnails all I see
    are icons. The other files I have are all okay it's just the PDF ones. I have
    been looking through your discussions and have tried several suggestions for
    viewing thumbnails however I cannot workout how to get to the suggestion you
    ade below as i would like to give this a try. Please could you give me a bit
    more detail of how to get to the always show icons, never thumbnails bit.

    Many thanks in anticipation of your reply
