    PDF files_ Some show thumbnail image, some don't?


    I am having this problem with PDF files. Some of them show the 1st page of the file(mostly books front cover) as thumbnail image on the desktop, and, inside folders, but, some don't show the thumbnail image of the first page in the file. These files that don't show the thumbnail image, just show the same standard icon of the program that is used to open the PDF files.For example, I am using PDF-Xchange program for PDF files right now. So, these files just show a PDF file Icon for that program. I do not know what is causing some files to show the thumbnail images, but, others don't. It helps me a lot if I can see the 1st page of the file(mostly Books Front covers) as a thumbnail image. I appreciate any help with this issue. Thanks in advance.

    Method 1 Step 2

    Check any option you may have such as this:
    PDF Icons used to Show Preview of Document - No... |Adobe Community

    Also note that a while back depending which reader was default (e.g. Nitro, Sumatra, Foxit) thumbnails were displayed depending on which was default. It seems updates to those have allowed thumbnals to be shown consistently.

    I think this can help,
    PDF Icons used to Show Preview of Document - No... |Adobe Community
    but, I just downloaded Acrobat Reader XI last night. When I go to Edit---->Preferences------->General, The page that I see has different sets of options. I do not see a checkbox for;
    "Enable PDF Thumbnail PreViews in Windows Explorer"
    What Version of Adobe Readers offer this option? I do not see it in Adobe Reader XI? Thanks Again
