My Pictures Icons

All my picture files (jpegs) are displayed with a generic icon showing a lake with mountains in the background. How can this to show the actual picture?

Hi Andrew and welcome to W7 Forums

Refer to Folder Options - Open and ensure that the option Always show icons, never thumbnails is unchecked as shown.

Hello Andrew, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition to the above for more options: Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable



If you are only having this issue with .jpg or .jpeg image files and not with any other image files (ex: .bmp), then you could download and merge their file extension from the list in the tutorial below to restore their default associations to fix this.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
