  2. Windows Explorer is not showing thumbnails for files and folders

    Original title: thumbnails

    I'm using Windows 10 and suddenly Windows Explorer is not showing thumbnails for files and folders. Windows doesn't show thumbnail previews.

    Can you please help me in fixing the problem?

  3. After fall update, Windows 10 puts a maximum size on thumbnail cache and deletes older thumbnails before new ones can be generated

    After fall update, Windows 10 puts a maximum size on thumbnail cache and deletes older thumbnails before new ones can be generated

    Windows 10 didn't have this problem (Windows 8 did), but the creators update 2 brought the problem back!

    Essentially, there is a hard limit on the number/size of thumbnails you can have on. Windows now deletes previously generated thumbnails to make room for new thumbnails.

    This is what I found:

    I deleted the cache and opened C:\\Users\\<YOUR NAME>\\AppData\\Local\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Explorer, to see how the thumbnail cache folder and its files increase in size as I started to rebuild thumbnails in various folders.

    In the beginning I could see the size of the folder and the number of files in that folder increase nicely as I rebuild thumbnails. However, the thumbcache_96.db file (which for me seems to store thumbnails for picture files) tops off at 349 MB. That's when
    the already-generated thumbnails for picture files start to reset in real-time to make way for thumbnails being generated currently. The other file "thumbcache_1280.db" stores thumbnails for video files and that one still increases in size fine as I rebuild
    thumbnails for video files, although I don't now what the upper limit for that file is (mine is at only 137 MB now).

    So there you have it. I think there's something from the creators update 2 that is preventing the thumbnail cache file from increasing in size by putting a cap on the size of thumbcache.db. Is there a fix for this?

    When you double click the files, are they open with the proper program?
    What was the result of rebuilding thumbnail cache?
