  1. Issues with Preview Pane in File Explorer.


    in file explorer, the only preview images that show are ones imported from my android phone.

    there are no preview images whatsoever showing for photos previously imported from my windows 8 phone, either from pictures subfolders or from onedrive pictures folder.

    have tried view -> options -> change folder and search options -> always show icons, never thumbnails unchecked.

    did not work.

    have tried control panel -> system -> advanced settings -> performance -> custom -> show thumbnails instead of icons checked.

    did not work.

    any other suggestions, and insight into why WP photos not previewing on Windows PC?

    thanks!

    Preview pane not functional / causing system issues

    Hi,

    We can see here that you're having an issue with using the preview pane for File Explorer. Since using the preview pane affects the CPU usage when trying to view Office files, we could suggest that you changed your File Explorer View setting into the Navigation
    pane by performing the following steps:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Click on the View tab.
    • Select Preview pane to remove it from being highlighted.

    Once done, try to open files using Office apps and check if this helps your Surface Pro 4 works fine.

    We look forward to your reply.

    Issues with Preview Pane in File Explorer.

    Video in the preview pane

    Aileen,

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    What I really need to know is how get the video to play in the preview pane. Prior to Windows 10, this worked wonderfully and was an asset. Now, it requires making changes to the Windows registry - not recommended due to the enormous amount of issues with
    Windows 10.

    Any other suggestions?
