    Want jpg icons to show image thumbnails instead of generic icons


    Hi:
    Since updating to Windows 10, whenever I open file folders to view jpgs, the files' thumbnails are a generic blue mountain icon instead of thumbnails of the images themselves. How do I get the icons to go back to being thumbnail images again? Is there a command or menu option that will change this for all jpgs in my folders rather than having to change one by one?
    Thanks!

    :)

  3. How do I get Windows to generate thumbnails for images larger than 10000kb in size?

    So this one gets curiouser and curiouser.

    In my regular user profile, the images above 10000kb don't generate thumbnails.

    In my admin user profile, the images above 10000kb don't generate thumbnails.

    Our IT department's admin profile generates thumbnails for JPGs larger than 10000kb, but not any other commonly thumbnailed image format (no BMP, no PNG, no TIFF thumbnails).

    The thumbnails that that account sees for large JPGs don't show up when loaded by my accounts!

    Yes, thumbnail previews are enabled, at least it appears that way when I open the file folder. I can see the preview pane, but the preview is just a larger version of the generic icon. I imagine there must be a way to change this. I can't upload these images when I can't tell what they are. I use these images for my online shop and FB page. Obviously, I need a resolution to this so I can see what I'm uploading! Any other thoughts that might help?

    Are you saying you have unchecked the tick-box for 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' in File Explorer options?

  15. Certainly didn't work for me! The Display file icons on thumbnails was never checked anyway, CR2 files have thumbnails. BMP files have thumbnails. TIF files have thumbnails. PCD files don't have thumbnails. JPG files are capricious. Some have thumbnails, others just flash up with a thumbnail and then immediately the icon replaces is. It is a real pain, and must be something to do with the 'update' of Win10.
