    Want jpg icons to show image thumbnails instead of generic icons


    Hi:
    Since updating to Windows 10, whenever I open file folders to view jpgs, the files' thumbnails are a generic blue mountain icon instead of thumbnails of the images themselves. How do I get the icons to go back to being thumbnail images again? Is there a command or menu option that will change this for all jpgs in my folders rather than having to change one by one?
    Thanks!

    Hello tandree30, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Double check to make sure that you have thumbnail previews turned on.

    Yes, thumbnail previews are enabled, at least it appears that way when I open the file folder. I can see the preview pane, but the preview is just a larger version of the generic icon. I imagine there must be a way to change this. I can't upload these images when I can't tell what they are. I use these images for my online shop and FB page. Obviously, I need a resolution to this so I can see what I'm uploading! Any other thoughts that might help?

    Are you saying you have unchecked the tick-box for 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' in File Explorer options?
