and you could also try adding wmv, then click, Activate.

Went into the Icaros and deactivated, then added ;.wmv;.mp4 and reactivated,
and all my thumbs are back and fully visible!!
Thanks so much for helping sort this out, been driving me mad for quite some time and had resigned myself to wait for a MS fix.

Again thanks for the help and support!

I found how to change Icons to Thumbs in Win 7 64bit

I searched Google endlessly for changing icons in Win Explore to thumbs and got no help. It turned out that
in control panel - systems - advanced system settings ( upper left ) opens up "system properties". Under this is " advanced " and "performance " and then "visual effects " with a bunch of unticked options. Halfway down is " show thumbnails instead of icons " which has the same sizing properties as the icons. I spent weeks trying to get here. I just hope this is not just for my edition of Win 7.
