    Not all photo thumbnails showing.


    Hi there chaps.

    I have this problem with File Explorer. I have checked the box "Always show icons, never thumbnails"
    Not all photo thumbnails showing. [​IMG]


    But not all of the thumbnails are showing. I get a mixture of the "mountain" icon as well as some thumbnails.

    I have tried to delete the thumbnail cache and nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could do? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Matt.

  2. After Windows Update all Photos Icons Can Only be with Photo App Insignia

    Uncheck "Always show Icons, never Thumbnails" You said " now all of my photos, in thumbnail form, show only the Microsoft Office Photo App insignia." But if you changed the Default to Windows Photo app, are you still seeing the "Office Photo App insignia?"

  3. .MP4 files lose their thumbnails in the Win 10 Photos app, when viewing in "Collection" mode.

    First:

    Win 10 Home.

    Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.576).

    Microsoft Photos 16.1118.10000.0.

    All available update applied.

    Everything, that I know of, works perfectly, except for the following very odd issue with the Photos app.

    I power on my pc and then start the Photos app.

    I choose the "Collection" option to view all of my files.

    Some of my files are .jpg's and some are .mp4's.

    Initially, the "Collection" view shows thumbnails for all of my files. Both the .jpg's and the .mp4's.

    And this is great.

    Most times, I can end the Photos app and restart it several times a day and everything looks good.

    But occasionally, when I restart the Photos app, I see thumbnails for all of the .jpg files BUT, instead of having a unique thumbnail for each .mp4 file, I have instead, a grey box, with a round circle in the middle, for each .mp4 file.

    I can double click on these boxes and the .mp4 files play just fine.

    It's just that my thumbnails have been replaced with these grey boxes.

    What always works (to return the .mp4 thumbnails), is to restart the pc.

    When the photos app stops showing the thumbnails, if I navigate to the folder that holds the .mp4 files, they all show as little thumbnails in file manager. (As they should.)

    It's just the Photos app no longer shows the thumbnails for the .mp4 files.

    The thumbnails for the .jpg's do continue to appear in the Photos "Collection" view.

    Anyone else have this very odd issue ?

    Suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Not all photo thumbnails showing.

    Having always show Icons not Thumbnails is your problem. Default is that box is left unchecked.
