Vista will not show jpeg thumbnails, Help!!
None of my jpeg images show up in any folders, no thumbnails of them, but the
bitmat ones show. I have already went in and made sure the show icons instead
on thumnails was not checked, I've tried system restore, I've deleted the
iconcache folder so it would be rebuilt, I've changed the monitor from 32 to
16 and back to 32 again. And restarted everytime I tried something new. I
work in photoshop a lot, so it makes it really hard when you go to open a
picture and there's no thumbnails in the folder, any folder. All of my
pictures are now just plain ol icons. I've tried everything that I know to
do. This is delaying me in a lot of work.
Could someone please please help me.
I would appreciate any and all feedback asap.
Thanks!!!!

If I am understanding you correctly you do not see the file extensions
in your folders. If this is the case, open the folder, click on "tools'
scroll down to " folder options" then click on the view tab in folder
options and uncheck
" hide extensions for known file types" then click on apply and ok. My
apoligies if you already are aware of this.
I am also wondering if you have "always show icons and never thumnails"
checked in the above mentioned folder options.
Good luck.
Let us know how you make out.

Re: Vista will not show jpeg thumbnails, Help!!

A few things to try first. Open folder options....mine are set under the
general tab , "show preview and filters" and not the "classic windows".
Take a read at this site below for more help such as resetting the
folder options and resetting the registry keys. ( Don't forget to set a
system restore point). If you go this route.
'Delete and Reset Windows Vista Folder Views or Folder Types Settings
to Default Clean State ╗ My Digital Life'
(http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/1...t-clean-state/)
It seems you are not alone with this problem so if you do get anything
to work let us know, you will no doubt make someone else's day.
Good luck!

Re: Vista will not show jpeg thumbnails, Help!!
Well, just to let ya know, I tried everything, and I mean everything that I
could find to do, and that was a lot. And nothing worked, so, I wound up
having to restore my computer back to the factory settings. It was easy, but
I had to back up all my stuff, and I put it all on disk, then did the
restore.
I tried the system restore and it never worked, but with the work that I do
I have to have those thumbnails, some might think it's crazy to restore all
the way back to factory settings for thumbnails, but I had to. And, now it
works perfectly. I don't know what caused it, but I hope it never happens
again.

Sorry, I couldnt help you.
