    Fix only half of files showing thumbnails & half showing icons


    I thought I'd covered all of the options in Settings to set file view in Explorer to thumbnails but only half of files showing thumbnails & half showing icons.

    How do I permanently set all files in Explorer to be shown as thumbnails please?

    Thanks.

    Hi, you could try e.g.
    Clear and Reset Thumbnail Cache in Windows 10

    and consider increasing the cache size:

    I might suggest:

    Uncheck "Display file icon on thumbnails" in explorer view options.

    Fix only half of files showing thumbnails & half showing icons-file-icon.jpg


    Open Folder Options in Windows 10



    The issue seems to be file extension jpeg and not jpg so check file associations for both and if different set default program for jpeg to whatever you're using for jpg.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I tried these...

    Clear and Reset Thumbnail Cache in Windows 10

    and consider increasing the cache size:
    Change Icon Cache Size in Windows 11 and 10

    but no change.

    I already has this setting...

    Uncheck "Display file icon on thumbnails" in explorer view options.

    No change.

    Did this...

    Choose Default Apps in Windows 10

    and set default as Viewprint as always but no change - still only half of files showing thumbnails & half showing icons!!!


    Very frustrating!!! I hate opening a folder & seeing this!!

    Anymore ideas please??

    Perhaps
    Rebuild Icon Cache in Windows 10

    set default as Viewprint
    What's Viewprint?

    You can reset default association for jpg/jpeg using the appropriate option:

    Check your image viewer for options that might control thumbnail settings. What is your image viewer (for jpeg files)?

    Seems to be an issue with:

    VuePrint

    Set some other image viewer as default.

    I have been using Viewprint for years & years! I've never had a problem with it.

    It's not updated since 2o14.

    I just installed it. I cannot get to the program's options via the built in Menu. F7 for options does nothing. I also cannot easily set it as default image viewer so you must have maybe used OpenWithAdd or something to register it.

    All I can say is that the icon you see on thumbnails belongs to that program. It also offers to install vueicons.

    I'd suggest uninstalling it and setting another program as default. Then reboot.

    Check your thumbnails. If they display okay - reinstall VuePrint and see if the issue returns, If it does, blame the program.
