I have been frustrated for a long while that my photo thumbnails do not show up when displayed in Windows Explorer under Windows 7. I have lived with it thinking I had searched for an answer but recently ran across a solution that seemed so simple and I could not remember trying it.

Windows 7 Displaying icons rather than thumbnails

Windows 7 Displaying icons rather than thumbnails

I found out all I had to do was go into windows explorer (where you browse files) and click “Organize” at top of screen then select “Folder and Search Options.” Under the “View” tab (second one up top) look in the advanced settings section. The very first line should be “Always show icons, never thumbnails.” Mine was checked. All I had to do was un-check it and hit “Apply.” Voila. Thumbnails.

Now to figure out how to get my Canon .CR2 RAW images to show up as thumbnails.
