Windows 7: Folders icons showing/not showing content

Folders icons showing/not showing content

Why is it that sometimes the folders icons show samples of their contents and sometimes not?

Check the two images: the first shows Desktop in Windows Explorer; the second shows the desktop itself.





Any idea on how to make Windows always show the folders contents samples?

TIA.

Hello Paul,

You might see if clearing and resetting the thumbnail cache may be able to help.

Yes, it did. As to the desktop itself, I found that the icon with the content appears only if we set the icons bigger than the small size, via context menu or Crtl+scroll wheel.

Thanks again.
