    Tried this but my problem is that the thumbnails would disappear in "real time." I have a folder of around 30,000 pictures. When I scroll down to generate thumbnails, I seem to be able to generate maybe a couple thousand thumbnails and then the earlier thumbnails reset before new ones can be generated. There seems to be a hard limit about the number of thumbnails I could have. I've posted about this problem before (like a long time ago) and it seemed to be fixed, until the windows update brought it back!
    This will not hurt anything. There are 2 locations in the registry to change the 1 on to 0 off. This works guaranteed. Go to this link and see my easy tutorial.

    About them loading only about 2000. First you have to stop the cache from being deleted with registry edits. Windows 10 deletes it when it reached about 500MB and even lower. But you may only get explorer to load so many and then explorer may crash and restart or the thumbnails will just stop loading in explorer. ("Once they load in explorer, they are there for good unless you leave the auto run on in registry at 2 locations or you delete them using Disk Clean UP. But when it stops loading thumbnails after about 2000, log off and back on and go to where it stopped and load more thumbnails. You may have to log off and on a few times.

    These 2 registry entries are in the Disk Clean Up Location and Microsoft has set windows disk clean up to auto delete them (Thumbnails). These 2 registry edits stop the auto deletion through the Disk Clean Up Caches. There are other caches located with thumbnail cache that also auto run and you can turn them off too. Microsoft had no business doing this to begin with.

    The whole "design" is just a mess, why they couldn't just leave the old method of creating a thumbs.db file per directory I really don't know, that worked just fine.

    I agree. I've always been of the opinion "If it ain't broke don't fix it" but MS and Apple just love to change for the sake of change breaking all sorts of functionality along the way!!!!

    Talking of which, is it safe to delete those thumbs.db files in media folders? I had lots of them from the past as the HDD was used in Vista, Win7 etc.

    Yes you can safely delete the Thumb.db files.

    The thumbs.db file will be created in Windows 10 when remote desktop connection established to shared files.

    Both of the Reg edits are still OK, though.

    Yup I had that too numerous times, the icon/thumb cache loves to corrupt itself.
