I frequently switch between machines; Windows 7, Windows 8, and Server 2008 R2. Some times when I review a folder containing image files the image thumbnail is displayed, and other times the same image type shows as a generic image placeholder. It is very frustrating, and I can't work out what the setting is to switch the thumbnail display on.
My specific problem is with Corel Draw, PNG, and TIFF Files on a new Windows 8 installation. If I double-click any of the images the appropriate application opens the file. But in the Explorer window all the images are visible as a generic.
I am not at the specific machine at the moment so I tried to view the 'images' folder of one of my web servers - and there they are; rows of little generic images in place of thumbnails?
Can someone assist me understand how to switch the displayed files to the actual image?
