    I want to restore original thumbnails to my files

    My painting pattern PDF files that are on my hard drive originally had the front page (picture of the project) as a thumbnail, making it quick and easy to find the file I want to use. After installing Nitro Pro to open the files with, all my thumbnails changed to the NitroPro icon. How can I restore the original helpful thumbnails to my files?

    If you don't want to uninstall Nitro Pro, then try this app: Generate Thumbnail Images from PDF Documents - CodeProject

    This is exactly what I want to do, is this a program/app I can download and run or do I have to do all that was shown on that page? That's a lot above my capability with the computer. Lol!

    Here's an article from the Adobe user forums from 2012 (a lot more recent, but still older) that provides a simpler-looking approach: A quick and easy fix for pdf thumbnail problem ... |Adobe Community. YMMV.
