How get preview handlers for .jpg files?

I am not getting previews for jpg type files in my Windows 7. I get previews for other programs like WORD and Acrobat, but not for pictures.

Is there a way to remedy this.

Hello Wsplawn,

Double check to make sure that you have thumbnails turned on. Next, check in Default Programs to make sure that you have Windows Photo Viewer set as the default program with all of it's association set to it as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
