  1. Image Previews Not Working on File Explorer


    After turning on my PC lately, I've noticed that the image previews in file explorer for all my images were not visible/present. Clearing and rebuilding the icon cache doesn't work. Would it have had anything to do with me installing the experimental new Segoe MDL2 font on a standard non-insider build of Windows 10 20H2 May Update?

    :)
