Windows 7: Issue with Default Image Icons

Issue with Default Image Icons

Hi, I've been having an issue for about a week now and I've been trying everything to fix this issue. I am wondering if anyone knows how to fix this issue. I changed my default icons for .jpg and .png and I can't find the original icons. I changed it using FileTypesMan.

Image of how my .jpg and .png files look like.

I just really want the original Windows image icons back.

Thank you so much if you can help!

- Mike

Hello Mike, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could download and merge the .reg files for the listed .jpg and .png options listed in the tutorial below to restore their default associations and registry entries. This will also include the default icon.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi, I did that for my icons I totally forgot to add the image but here it is -



Those are how my icons now look right now after I did the Default File Type Associations. I want to be able to see the image without opening it. That is how it was before on my computer

You're welcome,

See if this fixes that, enable thumbnails using this tutorial.

Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable



Those are the default icons, you want thumbnails.

Mike,

It looks like you may have thumbnail previews disabled instead of enabled.
