    Windows 10

    Previews for images (thumbnails) are gone in explorer.

    All of a my preview for my images are gone...

    I went to Google and looked up some possible solutions.

    In explorer under view/options under View "Always show icons never thumbnails" is unchecked.
    I also tried to choose "Restore Defaults" from there as well with no luck. Yes, I closed and re-opened
    explorer after the change.

    I under went under Control Panel/System/Advanced/System Properties/Performance and
    made sure "Save Taskbar Thumbnail Previews" was checked as well as "Show thumbnails instead of icons"
    was also checked.

    Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

    Any help appreciated. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.
