Windows 7: Refresh Video Thumbnails Individually

Refresh Video Thumbnails Individually

Any way to do this? Kind of a pain to have to refresh your entire cache every time you have one bad thumbnail.

Try a right click into the window to open the context menu and click refresh while pressing down the shift key. That should override the cache and re-load/re-create the actual thumbnail (s). At least that seems to work for me.
Let me know the outcome, please

Holding down shift doesn't seem to do anything different.

Sorry to hear that....might be one of those 32 bit/64 bit differences...who knows.

I sometimes have luck if I copy the file in question and later on delete the original while giving the copy the original name (if that makes any sense to you)

That makes sense, and seemed to work. Thanks.
