I cant see Picture previews

Oscar Leitner 1 Reputation point

I tried everything i found online. Yes i unchecked the " Always show icons, Never thumbnails." Box. Yes i cleared the thumbnail cashes, yes i restarted several times. I cannot see picture previews in my folder. Sometimes random pictures show up for 1 second while scrolling through. But instantly disappear again. I NEED to see my pictures or i cannot sort through them. VERY infuriating because there literally isnt a reason for it to be that way. I can see other picture previews. Just not the 2000 pictures i copied from my phone.

    I would like to help you troubleshooting on this issue if it is caused by some system configuration.

    Do you mean you could see other photo preview but can't see those photos which copied from phone? Right?

    If you have placed those photos on a specific location of PC hard disk, try to create a new folder and move them to check if any changes.

    Or we could try to disable preview and reboot computer to enable it again to check. Try to change another way to enable it would be helpful.

    By the way, what's your system version and OS build? Please run "winver" command line in command prompt to check.
