Suddenly cannot see photo previews just jpeg icon

Everything seems correct - "View as large icons' is nominated.

But PC 2 cannot view its jpeg photos unless we open 'em. Just happened today. Reason unknown.

You want thumbnail previews if you want to see the picture,

View as large icons will just give you what you see now.
