Windows 7: Photo icons

Photo icons

I upgradred from Vista to Win 7. Then I managed to mess things up BIG TIME. Anyway, I had to do a clean re-install of Vista to re-upgrade to 7.

Now my photo icons are all generic when they used to preview the photo. Not good as I rely totally on picking photos by look not file name.

Can anyone help me get my preview icons back?

Thanx,

FOG Mk

Hello Fog Mk, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to make sure that you have thumbnail previews enabled, and that you have Windows Photo Viewer set as the default program with all if it's associations set to it as well in Default Programs.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Photo Fuse in Photo Gallery stopped working
I've used Photo Fuse a few time but now when I try to use it, it thinks for a few seconds then either shuts down Windows Live Photo Gallery or restarts it. I've tried upgrading from 2011 to 2012 but this has not solved the problem. Can anyone help?
