    Saving thumbnail in Excel


    When I save a workbook in Excel 2016 it will save, as a thumbnail, the thumbnail of the first workbook I created so if I have a lot of workbooks with different dates in he first column all workbooks will save with the date of the first workbook saved showing.

    If I save the workbooks in Excel 2013 each workbook will show with the correct date showing in the thumbnail.

    How can I make Excel 16 thumbnails behave in the same way as Excel 13 thumbnails?

    :)

    Excel & Powerpoint thumbnails not showing in windows 10 file explorer after updating to office 365

    Hi Gayle,

    When you save an Excel or PowerPoint in File Explorer it automatically saves two copies a preview copy and a thumbnail preview. Here are the steps on how you can see your files in thumbnail preview.

    • Open an Excel file or PowerPoint document.
    • Click File on the upper left side.
    • Select Info.
    • Look for Properties and click Advanced Properties.
    • Tick the box that says Save thumbnails for All Excel/PowerPoint Documents.
    • Check the folders where you saved the file it should be in thumbnails already.

    Feel free to contact us if you have further inquiries.

  3. Excel & Powerpoint thumbnails not showing in windows 10 file explorer after updating to office 365

    Thank you but this did not work. The boxes are already ticked for both excel and powerpoint. I also cannot open pptx documents from file explorer. I need to open from Powerpoint 2016. See error below.

    "this action is only valid for products that are currently installed'.

    Do you have another solution?

    excel not auto recovering and manually saving

    Hi,

    The concern you have encountered with Excel not auto saving may be due to a corrupted file or a misconfigured setting.

    May we ask if you have 3rd party software running when using Excel? If yes, we suggest to temporarily disable it to isolate the issue.

    Any changes made on your computer prior to the issue?

    Have you tried any possible troubleshooting steps? If yes, what are those steps and did you get any error messages?

    You can turn-on the auto save option by the following steps:

    • Open Excel
    • Go to File then Options
    • Under Save option, check the 'Save AutoRecovery information in every' option
    the best way to check when auto save is disabled is to hover over the toggle and read the reason that the popup tool tip identifies. Simply follow the steps provided in this

    article
    .

    According to this
    article
    the autosave function will be disabled when the file is in the old file format .xls.

    Kindly keep us posted with the results.

    Regards.
