  1. Picture icons


    Hi, my problem is when I open a folder with pictures in it, I see some thumbnails but they disappear within a second or so.


    I have tried the suggested checks in Options (clearing - Always show icons...) but with no success. I have recently installed the Windows update and subsequently uninstalled it.


    Any ideas what to try next?

    :)

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder


    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Photo Icons in the Picture Folders

    Hi,

    Misconfigured view settings is on of the usual reasons why it is not displaying the actual photo. We suggest checking the settings of your folder to make sure it show the icons, instead of the thumbnail. Kindly follow the steps below to check it:

    • Open Picture folder.
    • Choose View tab at the top, then click the (Square icon) Options as shown on the picture below:

    • Click View tab, put a check mark on the box beside the
      Always show icons, never thumbnails. See picture below:

      Picture icons 25255605-64c1-4d21-92f9-f2dcf1a0791d.png
    • Close the folder, and check if you will be able to see the display picture for each icon.

    Kindly update us with the outcome.
