Windows 7: No thumbnails on D: partition?

No thumbnails on D: partition?

I know this should be simple but I can't figure it out.

I have a 50gb partition that holds mostly video files. In Explorer they show the icon for their file type generated by KMPlayer (my default media player) but I cannot figure out how to go back to thumbnail view.

I tried the View settings in Explorer choosing large icons. And in Organize>Folder Options choose to uncheck the box for "always show icons never thumbnails". But I can't get this drive to show thumbnails. The root folder and all subfolders show only KMP icons.

What am I missing?

Go inside the folder, then use the view settings to change.

Hi,thanks for the reply.

Inside the folder is where I have tried to make the changes. All View options just change the size of the icons. I never get thumbnails.

I think it has to do with KMP because I know at some point the videos showed thumbnails but don't exactly know when they switched to icons.
