    There are two places in the View pane where you can set by 'Name, ascending order' and these can be set independently of each other. One is 'Sort by', the other is 'Group by'. It is the 'Group by' setting that puts that line there. Only when 'Group by' is set to (none) is there no line shown. If you truly have 'Group by' set for 'Name, ascending' it should look like this.

    I see that your problem is actually the whole icon/thumbnail missing from the view, but the actual file is there.

    Here is how to solve that:

    1. Open File Explorer using shortcut key WIN+E

    2. Find your C-drive (see image below)

    3. Right click on the C-drive icon and select Properties

    9. Now using Explorer, navigate to the folder where the thumbnails were missing.


    Report back here once you have tried that. There can be more things we need to solve if this did not help.
