    Windows 10 isn't saving thumbnail cache for my game folder.


    I have a folder on my desktop called "PC GAMES" and it has shortcuts to my game executables. I have the folder set to "View extra large icons" unfortunately Windows 10 doesn't load the cache all the time and my HDD has to spin up to load all the icons again. Sometimes I can open the folder and the HDD doesn't have to load all the icons and sometimes it does. What can I do to make Windows always load the cache for that folder so my HDD doesn't have to load all those icons? I'm afraid my HDD is going to wear out faster. *Sad

  2. Customised folder pics reverting back to default?

    This could be many reasons.

    If you are just putting files into a folder and the folder shows thumbnail preview and then later is show default folder image

    then it is probably because Windows 10 deletes your thumbnail cache when it reaches about 500MB.

    You can in the properties>Customize

    use a photo (jpg etc) to display that folder view

    you can select an icon and use that for folder display

    Note Icons and thumbnails are different and have separate caches to store them.

    But you say it shows a thumbnail view and when putting in new item into that folder, the folder view goes back to default view.

    That is a bit odd if the case

    Maybe rebuild your thumb nail and icon caches

    download and run tool, it works good

    Thumbnail and Icon Cache Rebuilder for Windows 10

    and disable auto deleting of your thumbnail cache. and increase icon cache

    Stop Windows 10 Auto Deleting Thumbnail Cache "Updated"

    Usually your folder will show 2 items on the thumbnail and usually after adding more items into that folder, the view will not change

    go into folder options>view tab and make sure the first box is unchecked. Apply - Apply to folders - OK

  3. How do I see photos and not the icon in my pictures files?

    If you click the View tab in the Pictures folder, you can choose Large or Extra large icons.

    If you are not seeing the actual photo, you will need to reset the icon cache:
