Windows 7: Print Preview not working (select pics/right click to print)

Print Preview not working (select pics/right click to print)

When I select my pics to print, right click to print, the preview box comes up but nothing shows as a preview.

This started when I wiped my operating system clean. It hasn't worked properly since.

Thanks for any help

What exactly do you do? When you select the pictures then right click, do you then click on Preview or ?????

What is the file extension of the pictures? jpg jpeg gif bmp png ???

Check Control Panel, Default Programs, Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
Scroll down to the file types I listed and set the program you want to open for them by default.

I have them set for Windows Photo Viewer.
