    Video Thumbnails Not Working - Folder Options Are Correct


    Upgraded about a week ago and things have gone fairly well so far, but I just noticed something that really bothers me. The thumbnails for video files are not working. The folder option of show icon never thumbnail is not checked, and in system performance show thumbnail instead of icon is checked....folder option set to "video" type (but same thing happens with other types). I understand that those settings are normally the cause of the this type of issue, but not this time. Photo thumbnails work just fine. It may seem minor but it's a deal killer for me and I will wipe the drive and go back to windows 7 if this is just the way it works. However I'm thinking it must be something I can correct because they couldn't possibly have gotten rid of video thumbnails. Any ideas are appreciated.

    :)

  3. Windows 10 File Explorer video thumbnail display problem

    I've just upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 and am now on build 10240.

    In file explorer, I open a folder that contains pictures; I select one and the picture thumbnail appears in the preview pane. I select another picture and that thumbnail appears in the preview pane - that all works as expected. Now, I open a folder containing
    videos and select one (say video1). The thumbnail appears in the preview pane and is playable from there. Now I select another video (say video2) from the same folder but the thumbnail from video1 still remains in the preview pane. If I double click the thumbnail
    in the preview pane it now plays video2 ! Even if I switch to a different folder that contains other videos, the same thumbnail (video1) remains in the preview pane although the correct, selected video would play if the thumbnail was clicked.

    I thought maybe my thumbnail Dbs might have become corrupted so I deleted all of them and let Windows rebuild them. Problem remained.

    Any ideas ?
