  1. Icon thumbnails disappearing


    Very often all my thumbnails will disappear. Desktop, toolbar, file thumbnails etc all disappear and will not reload until I restart my system. This happens way to often and computer seems sluggish when it does. What can I do??


    I figure it's a memory problem but I'm not sure. I've got 32gb ram and a GTX1070. I do alot of video editing but this happens even when I'm not taxing my computer that much.



    So my icons are still there and I can still click on them but when I need to scroll through hundreds of raw video files named "P10246whatever.mp4" you kinda need to see the thumbnails or else you're stuck watching each one.


    Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Picture Files not updating thumbnails

    Hi,

    I realize that the picture files are not updating thumbnails. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Suggest you to perform “Disk Cleanup”, cleaning up the temporary internet files, thumbnail, cookies and temp files, so as to check the thumbnail view of the photo is updated by cleaning up your temporary data.

    Further, if the issue persists then you can also follow these steps:


    • Right click in the Folder that contains the images.

    • Select View.

    • Note the current icon size, and change it to another size (ie: "Medium-Icons" to "Large-Icons", then back to "Medium-Icons").

    • This causes the icons to be resized and their cache updated.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

  3. thumbnail and icon disappeared when change view size

    Hi,

    To help you with your issue about thumbnail and icon disappearing when changing view size, please refer to the information below.

    The reason why thumbnails and icons disappears when set to large icons is that the resolution of your monitor might not be able to handle the large format setting of these icons. You may either set it and maintain them to medium icons or you may try to use
    Control (keyboard)+ scroll up or scroll down (mouse) to set them to your desired size.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.
