Image preview in explorer not a happening thing..

Best explained with a screenshot: http://imgur.com/UUwTZ.jpg

There's no preview in neither the preview pane, nor the icon list.

I've dug through the explorer settings but no luck.

Hello Pike, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check to make sure this is unchecked in Folder Options.

Also double check to make sure that Windows Photo Viewer is set as the default program with all of it's associations set to it as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
