    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.


    To assist you better, I would like to know the file format of the image that you would like to see in preview pane.

    If the preview pane doesn’t appear, I suggest you to follow the steps and check if that helps to resolve the issue.


    • Open the folder where the images are located.

      Preview pane.

    • Now you will be able to see the images on the Preview pane.
    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.
