  1. Lost thumbnails to photos


    Please help, my photos saved on the computes are in place but just plain icons, no thumbnails.

    Alot of photos did get deleted somewhere else in the computer during Backup and Sync, but they were backup of a backup.


    But now I only see the plain icons and not the little photos, Does something have to be redownload. They are also downloaded to google photos.

    :)

    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?

    If you do the suggestion by Cyberdesigner and they still show as icons, check your performance settings and make sure "show thumbnails instead of icons" is checked.


    Right click Start, select System -> Advanced system settings -> Advanced tab -> Performance - Settings

    Hi

    File Explorer>Pictures>Open Pictures.

    If Your Photos come up as just a List and don't show up as Thumbnails, look at the Two Small Icons at the Bottom Right of the Screen and 'Toggle' between them.

    The first one gives you a List View and the other one gives you a Thumbnail View.

    Or you could Click: View at the Top of the Screen and then you Can not only see your Photos as Thumbnails but you can also choose the Size.
