However the preview works for some other jpg and png files in the same folder.I think the problem appeared after I installed one photo viewer from microsoft store.I have tried the two solutions of this thread without success rebuild the cache and make sure the view options are correct.https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/cant-preview-png-files-in-explorer/60dfc90d-b7ef-40fe-85b4-68351f8e936d
