    Preview Pane in File Explorer turns on by itself


    For about the last week the Preview pane in File Explorer has been turning on by itself. I've also run into a similar problem in which the Hidden Items checkbox will turn on after reboot or after an update.

    Running 20H2 Build 19042.610.

    Thanks folks!

    :)

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Tap on View tab.
    • Click Preview Pane to view/hide it.

    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?
