How to fix thumbnail preview problems


How to fix thumbnail preview problems

Windows keeps a copy of all of your picture, video, and document thumbnails so they can be displayed quickly when you open a folder. The thumbnail preview problems can be resolved by clearing the thumbnail database and let the system rebuild it as and when required. To do so, use these steps:
Clearing the Thumbnail Cache using Disk Cleanup
Canned Statement: Let me go ahead and rebuild the thumbnail cache to troubleshoot the thumbnail preview problem in your computer.
1. On Start Screen, type disk cleanup, click Settings from right sidebar followed by Free up disk space by deleting unnecessary files.

2. Select the system drive letter (Normally the C: drive) from the drop-down and click OK.

3. Uncheck all the entries, except Thumbnails.

4. Click OK, and click Delete Files to confirm.

Note: The thumbnail database is stored globally in Windows 7 & Windows Vista, unlike Windows XP, where the thumbnail database is stored on a per-folder basis. In Windows 7 & Windows Vista, the default thumbnail cache location is mentioned below:
%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer
