Question about Computers & Internet
Recently my thumbnails for all image formats (except .ico) have stopped appearing in Explorer in Vista. I have unticked the "Always show icons never thumbnails" option in the Folder and Search options. I have set the visual effects to be for best appearance. I have reapplied the Aero theme. I have also tried deleting thumbs.db and the icon cache. I do not know what else to try. Any help?
In the Advanced System Properties when you right click on (My) Computer, you probably set the Performance Settings to "Adjust for best performance". In there you will see a Custom List of options and "Show thumbnails instead of icons" needs to be checked.

Right Click on 'My Computer' > Select 'Properties' > Select 'Advanced system settings' > In 'Advanced' tab, under Performance section, click 'settings' > Chech the option 'Show thumbnails instead of icons' > Apply & OK Problem Solved ;)

Something I tried and it worked.
Go to Tools/Folder options in the Explorer toolbar.
If the " Always show icons never thumbnails" is unchecked ....try checking it....then apply and close. Then go back and uncheck it ....apply and close.
Dont know why but this worked for me and this has been bugging me for ages.

For Windows XP:
Open the problematic folder, Press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Thumbnails". It'll toggle the file/folder names.
Actually its a feature to show/hide file names while in Thumbnails mode.
For Windows Vista and 7: Open the problematic folder, right-click in empty area and de-select "View -> Hide File names". If the option is not available, then press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Medium Icons".
For Windows Vista and 7:
Open the problematic folder, right-click in empty area and de-select "View -> Hide File names". If the option is not available, then press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Medium Icons".
