  2. Pictures in library

    I used PS Elements 13 to process my pictures. I don't know why but when I save them and view them the unprocessed ones are also included. Why is that? Is it something to do with Windows 10? It did not happen in Win 7. How do I prevent the originals
    from being saved in my folder containing my new picture files. Also, how do I get my thumbnails to show what the file contains rather than the generic symbol? Thanks

    windows 10 picture files

    I have just purchased a new laptop with windows 10, I have uploaded some pictures (saved) from my editing software and all I can see in the pictures folder is a blank thumbnail with the file number, I cannot see a thumbnail preview of the image, I can alter
    the size of the blank thumbnail but no image preview.....I am saving in jpeg format jpeg2?

    I am doing photo editing and need to see thumbnails :-(

    Why Folder Thumbnails NOT Update When I Saved New Pictures ?

    Hi, I understand the question as
    Why doesn't the folder icon change when I save new images to that folder? How do I get that to refresh?

    What I note is that the folder icon does refresh automatically if there's a significant change to the folder content. For example, it changes if I put all the images in a folder into a folder within the first folder.

    However, the shortcut to that folder isn't necessarily updated at the same time.

    The difference can be seen by opening an explorer window to view the folder contents, and another to view the folder icon (e.g. medium). Significant changes to the folder content are quite quickly reflected in the folder icon.

    For example, deleting 1 of three images makes no change, deleting 1 of two images makes a change in the icon.

    If at the same time you keep a shortcut to the folder visible on the desktop, you will probably see no change in that, even if you rebuild the cache.
