Can't view what pictures I have in gallery

When I go to pictures and choose my folder, it shows all my pictures, but all as flower icons, not little images of the picture. It didn't used to be like this but i dont know how to fix it, pls tell me so i can pull up the pictures I want without going through everyone of them. Thanks

jake7943. welcome to the forums. Try these steps

Right click your desktop and select Personalization

Click Tools then Folder Options from the drop down

Click the view tab

Deselect the box labeled "Always show icons, never thumbnails."

Click "Apply" to save your changes, then click "OK."

That should do it for you

Interesting way to get there Dude,

@Jake,
You can also Click on Organize on the top left (on the same pictures page) and click on Folder and search options,
View section and Uncheck the same box... Apply and Okay.
