Open Windows Explorer, click on Organize button present in command bar and select "Folder and search options".
Now go to View tab and make sure "Always show icons, never thumbnails" option is not enabled i.e. its disabled.
Or
Type sysdm.cpl in RUN or Start Menu search box and press Enter. It'll open System Properties.
Go to "Advanced" tab and click on "Settings" button in "Performance" section.
Now make sure "Show thumbnails instead of icons" option is enabled
