  1. How often does thumbnail cache get refreshed?


    Does Windows automatically refresh the thumbnail cache of its own accord? If so, how often does it do it? I know you can kick it off manually. I have a load of m4a music files where explorer is not displaying the album art thumbnail. I just wondered if it may fix at some point if the thumbnail cache refreshes automatically

    :)

  3. Thumbnails after installing Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

    This seems to happening to a lot of us since the recent update to 1709. From what I've seen elsewhere a temporary solution is disabling the task which "cleans" the thumbnail image cache, which is obviously running far too often since the update.

    See here:

    After Creators Update 2 thumbnails cache keeps auto-deleting Solved - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums

    They suggest: ("To do that, run Regedit.exe and browse the following path:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Thumbnail Cache
    Modify Autoruns DWORD and set its value to 0 and reboot your computer.
    Now Automatic Maintenance should no longer delete your thumbnails.")
