Windows 10: Thumbnails corrupt
When photo folder is opened with thumbnail view (any size) initially the thumbnails show ok but then slowly the Portrait thumbnails have 2 white diagonal stripes placed over them this keeps going until all the portrait sized thumbnails have the stripes.
I have cleaned and reset the thumbnail cache several times it has no effect. The photos still opens ok....it's just a pain having the thumbnail constantly loading especially if there are several hundred in the folder.
Any ideas anyone?
If you wish, you can try to increase the Icon Cache Size to a larger value. The default is 500, increase it to 2000
500 is equivalent to 2048K
2000 ===> 8192K
Open Registry editor and go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
set: Max Cached Icons to 2000.
Delete thumbnail cache and reboot to see if it helps.
Thanks tipgundcp, I went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer but where to from there to reset Cached Icons? Nearest I could find was :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Thumbnail Cache but it has no reference to Max Cache.
Would you mind steering me to the spot you mean?
Oops! I got it, sorry.

Should windows 10 (by default) be displaying thumbnails within explorer for m4a files? I'm browsing my iTunes media folder and I can see thumbnails only for .mp4, .mp3, .m4p but not for m4a. If I play an m4a file within media player or...
Have thumbnails on all video and photos except vob files.
Always had thumbnails on vob files in windows 7?
Is this normal for windows 10?
