  1. No thumbnails displayed in Photos section of search results.


    I got the free Windows 10 upgrade yesterday and everything seemed to work really well until I tried using the Search Bar.
    The problem is that although search results are returned (The indexing seems to be correct) the images displayed under the Photos section are mostly missing their thumbnails which makes the feature pretty useless.
    Some images have thumbnails but most don't and it isn't any specific file type that does or not display it just seems random.
    I have attached a quick screen shot so you can see what I mean.

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice!*Confused

    Viewing photo files on phone as thumbnails

    When using the PC to access the photos on my Samsung S3, Android 4.1.2, they are no longer shown as thumbnails, just Icons. The photo files on the computer are displaying ok as thumbnails, as were phone files previously. Settings are the same in folder
    search box, i.e, the box "do not show as thumbnails" is unticked. Cannot find any help on phone settings either. Anyone else run into this problem?

    Picture preview at Windows 10

    Hi Chan,

    If File Explorer is not showing thumbnail previews for photos in Windows 10, You may try out the following solutions:

    Check if thumbnail preview supported view is turned on

    Make sure that you have turned on the thumbnail preview supported view for the folder where you have your photos. Note that every folder can have its own view setting, and when you change the view, it won’t be applied to all
    the folders on your PC.

    To turn on thumbnail preview supported view, click on the View tab, and then click on one of the following views: Extra-large icons, Large icons, Medium icons, Tiles, Content.

    Check if thumbnails are disabled

    When thumbnails are turned off, the File Explorer displays icons of the default program for the file type instead of the thumbnail preview. You may try these steps:

    • Open up File Explorer. Click the File menu and then click Change folder and search options to open Folder Options. If a file is selected in the particular folder, you might see just Options instead of Change folder and search options. Clicking Options
      will also open Folder Options.
    • Switch to the View tab. Under Advanced settings section, uncheck the option labeled Always show icons, never thumbnails, and then click Apply button
      to enable thumbnails in Windows Explorer.

    Feel free to contact us if you have further inquiries.

  4. No thumbnails displayed in Photos section of search results.

    Solved it the problem was been caused by the fact I was using Sage Thumbs to display .psd files prior to the upgrade.
