Windows 7: Most folders show a mini preview file, but some dont?

06 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 64 & Ubuntu 64
Most folders show a mini preview file, but some dont?

Ok most of my folders when set to large icons show a little file or picture or whatever if there is something inside of the folder. But I have a couple of folders that arent showing any mini preview but have something in them?

Any ideas?

Try rt. click on folder/properties. Customize tab/Change Icon. In the window that opens, click on Restore Defaults. See if that fixes it.
