    Can't preview pdf in Windows 10 Explorer


    I cannot view pdf files from Preview Pane in Windows 10 Explorer. When I click on a pdf file, the Preview Pane has a message that says "this file can't be previewed." I have Adobe 9. The Edit, Preferences, General screen does not have an option to enable thumbnail previews.

    :)

    pdf preview in Windows 10 file explorer

    thanks for suggestion. i tried both, but neither worked. even with using Edge as pdf reader, and resetting and restarting, pdf previews in explorer, regardless of which default pdf viewer used, resulted in very small window in preview pane.

    pdf preview in Windows 10 file explorer

    Open Acrobat Reader. On the Edit menu, choose Preferences.

    In the Preferences dialog box, choose General in the Categories list, and then select the Enable PDF thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer check box.

    Enable PDF thumbnail previews

    Click OK.

    Wait for a few seconds while Acrobat is configured to show thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer.

    Restart then check again.

    Can't preview pdf in Windows 10 Explorer

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
