  3. Windows icons missing and all files pictures are showing as thumbnails

    Hi there,

    My name is Jocelyn, an independent advisor and a fellow Windows 10 user happy to help.

    Please try the following steps for your Files, Pictures, and Documents:

    Open Windows Explorer, click on View, then click on Options and Change folder and search options.

    Click on the View tab and check the box that says Always show icons, never thumbnails and uncheck the box that says Display file icon on Thumbnails.

    Now you should see all the icons your pictures, files, and documents.

    For your Windows icons that are missing:

    Please follow the suggestions on the below-mentioned article:

    https://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/...

    https://www.guidingtech.com/fix-windows-10-apps...

    If none of these work, you can perform a system restore back to the state where everything was working.

    Please refer to this link for the steps. Select Restore from a system restore point.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-ph/help/12415/...

    I hope this would help. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Best,

    Jocelyn

    Windows apps missing icon only showing thumbnail

    missing icons / thumbnails

    I would like to try and repair my windows 10 installation that no longer displays thumbnails for certain file types like png images. It seems like this is usually due to a file association issue. This seems to be evident in the 'open with' context menu and the icons for system apps appear blank. Blank icons for system apps such as calculator, snip&sketch, photos also appear on the taskbar. Is this something that I can repair or is it worth doing a fresh install. I have not made any system restore points and am running Win10 ver 22H2 build 19045.2486.
