Windows 7: Preview and Thumbnails

Preview and Thumbnails

Some .psd files show image thumbnail and image preview in Windows Explorer (Win7 64-bit); other .psd files show icon thumbnail and no preview. Even within the same folder! What's up? I believe they used to all show images for both.

Please note that I have already done all that is necessary to get image thumbnails and previews, as most of my psd files show both! So please do not recommend apps and codecs which enable this..:-)... Something I have done inadvertantly with my Windows must now be registering something that was saved within the individual files (?)......I want to find out how two files which are both psd files can differ. Note that in both case (both types), the Thumbnail check box in the SaveAs dialogue window is checked and grayed out.

Thanks for any ideas!
Janet

Hi Janet. You may try deleting thumbnail cache. After deleting thumbnail cache, if needed, refresh the folder, it is expected that the thumbnail previews will be back.

Anyone ever get empty preview thumbnails?
On taskbar preview thumbnails, usually you get to see the content inside the window.

The way to fix this is to make active that...
