  1. i notice only certain videos don't have thumbnails?


    i made sure ot turn on an show thumbnails.

    i see the assassin creed trailers have no thumbnail? just a mp4 file logo?

    i downloaded them from youtube.

    im assuming not all files support thumbnails?

    not an issue since they are the only ones as of now don't have thumbnail an no mater what version of the video. it has no thumbnail.

    quake 4 videos originally didn't had thumbnails. but it show son them now. what about assassin creed trailers?

    or am i missing an extension?

    i do notice the files get blocked when downloading an video?

    :)

    Video preview thumbnails

    Hello,

    System file corruption is one of the possible reasons why thumbnail preview has recently disappeared. To better assist you, please answer the following:

    • For clarification, are referring to video preview thumbnails when using File Explorer?
    • We would like to verify if you are referring to the Fall Creators Update. To see your
      Windows build and version, please follow the steps in this
      article
      .

    In the meantime, we suggest creating a Test User Profile. This is to see if the same issue occurs on a different user profile.

    To create a Test User Profile, follow these steps:

    • On Search, type Settings then hit the
      Enter
      key.
    • On Settings window, select Accounts.
    • Select Family & other people.
    • Select Add someone else to this PC.
    • Name the User Profile as TEST.
    • Assign a password for TEST user, then select Next.
    • Sign in TEST user.

    We'll be waiting on the results.

    File Explorer not showing thumbnails

    Brink,

    Many thanks for you reply. I have done all the steps you suggested, but no change,

    When I open a folder containing photos, some open correctly but the vast majority open with thumbnails, but they very quickly get overwritten and you can not longer see the thumbnails.

    Are there any more suggestions?

    i notice only certain videos don't have thumbnails?

    File Explorer - Some PDF's show thumbnail image, some don’t

    In Windows 10 File Explorer, I see thumbnails for a few of my pdf files but still see the generic Adobe pdf icon for most of them.

    • In Windows 10 folder options, the checkbox for “Always show icons, never thumbnails” is unchecked.
    • On the Adobe Reader preferences general tab, “Enable PDF thumbnails previews in Windows Explorer” is checked.
    • Adobe Acrobat is set as my default PDF viewer.
    • I have used Disk Cleanup to delete all my thumbnails to clear and rebuild the cache, yet the problem persists.
    Any suggestions on how I can see all the pdf icons as thumbnails?
    Windows 10 Pro, Version 1903, Build 18362.657
    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (20.006.20034)

    I asked over in the Adobe Acrobat Reader forum a few days ago but have received no replies.
