right, another idea in the pictures folder, hit the Alt key, then click tools>folder options>view check that "always show icons never thumbnails" is unchecked

I was haveing this same issue its been driving me crazy since when i got my laptop it did work anyways i figured it out . In the advanced folder options make sure to uncheck the checkbox that says always show icons never show thumbnails. If this option is checked you wont be able to get your preview icons to work no matter what. Thanks for the help and support even though it didnt help me with my issue this forum lead me to find the solution which is why im returning the favor
