Windows 7: Picture tags and dimensions not displaying in Explorer

26 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Picture tags and dimensions not displaying in Explorer


Please help me with the Explorer because is driving me crazy. Picture tags and dimensions not displaying in Windows Explorer, nor on roll-over or in the Properties tab.

A good example of a working ''properties display'' is this one:

Well, I don't have nor the size, tags or dimensions. I tried to reset the folder settings, view settings but nothing worked.

Also on a properly working Windows 7 whenever you right click on a image it show ''Set as desktop background''; that option is missing too except when I open a picture with Windows Photo Viewer at that point it shows ''Set as desktop background'' but not when I browse a random folder with pictures and right click on it.

This is a working ''Details pane'':

Mine looks like this:

The system is Win 7 Home Premium x32, up-to-date, nothing uninstalled recently; the issue appeared since the last time I reinstalled everything - so is relatively new and clean. Thank you.
