Windows 7: Disabling video thumbnail preview

Disabling video thumbnail preview

Must be one of the most often asked question, but I haven't found correct reply yet - how to disable Windows 7 64 bit File manager to display video thumbnail preview on right panel?

regsrv32 /u shmedia.dll doesn't work - file not found.
Preferred is to disable all video extensions with the same option, as there are rare formats which I'm not aware, but the slow PC down or may hang PC for several minutes.

Hello Robilong,

If you mean the Preview Pane, then it's a universal setting in all Windows Explorer windows to either be on or off. It cannot be turned on or off for specific file types.

Preview Pane - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,
