Folder Thumbnails Display Issue?

Hi,

I have noticed that both of my computers are having issues when displaying thumbnail folder. It seems that the preview of whatever is in the folder is invisible. Its not a massive issue as folders navigate just fine. Its just started to do it on my new install what i dd 2 days ago. Its strange because its on both my laptop and desktop. Is this caused by some program I may be using?

Any help would be appreciated

-open the folder which has problem
-Right click on empty area and uncheck "View-> Hide File names" option.
If this option is not exist then press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Medium Icons" option.

- If it doesn't work, enable "Show hidden files and folders" option in Folder Options and then delete "Desktop.ini" file present in the folder which has this invisible name problem.

hopefully it will work.........

Its not an issue with the name. Its a problem with the "look" of the folder and the display image it should have. The folder looks corrupt for some reason.

Hello TheNazgul, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if resetting the thumbnail cache may be able to sort it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
