Taskbar Thumbnail Previews Hanging

Feb 10, 2016

I included a screenshot below of the thing I'm referring to, because I've never been told what the actual name of it is.

Basically if Windows has been running a long time, the thumbnail previews for windows (from the taskbar) start to hang indefinitely until I click on them, or in an unfocused window. As you can imagine, this gets really annoying when I just move my cursor over an item in the taskbar, and one of these thumbnails pops up indefinitely, until I manage to make it go away manually.

How To Restore PDF Thumbnail Previews

Dec 29, 2015

With Adobe Reader DC, the folks at Adobe made every thumbnail a plain pdf icon. They removed the preview where the pdf icon is replaced by the first page of the pdf file. Seeing the pdf content is much more useful than just looking at the same icon for every file.

The links work, the instructions work.

Having thumbnail previews restored is wonderful.

Customization :: How To Disable DesktopThumbnail Previews

Dec 14, 2015

**Win-10 / build 10586.14

I am trying to find a way to prevent image thumbnails from displaying on my Desktop only.

I have my folder options set to allow for thumbnails. I embed images often, and I find it much easier when I can look for the image by sight, rather than by name only. I am trying to find out if I can leave my folder options set to allow for this, but not to allow thumbnails on the actual Desktop.

I thought that thumbnails would only work when the icons are set to size 'medium' and above, however I did right-click the Desktop and select "Small Icons," but the files still show as thumbnails.

Previews For Images ( Thumbnails ) Are Gone In Explorer

Dec 28, 2015

In explorer under view/options under View "Always show icons never thumbnails" is unchecked. I also tried to choose "Restore Defaults" from there as well with no luck. Yes, I closed and re-opened explorer after the change.

I under went under Control Panel/System/Advanced/System Properties/Performance and made sure "Save Taskbar Thumbnail Previews" was checked as well as "Show thumbnails instead of icons" was also checked.

CUR And ANI Files Not Showing Thumbnail After Assign Open With

Oct 2, 2015

By default .cur and .ani cursor files are not associated with opening by any program, and a thumbnail of the pic contents is displayed in the file explorer icons. When I assign a program for opening the file (ThumbsPlus, ACDSee, RealWorld Cursor Editor, whatever), the contents thumbnail changes to that program's icon. No more thumbnail or preview in the pane either. The only way I can get the thumbnail to return is to go to settings and Reset all default apps (which de-assigns those file types back to no program association).

Workaround is I use the "open with" menu command and make SURE I uncheck the "Always use this app to open...." box.

This does not happen to .jpg, .png, .ico or any other graphic type file. They all show thumbnails no matter what the program association. Only .cur / .ani.

Is this something we live with in Win 10? ...or am I "special"? I don't remember seeing this on Win 7, XP or any in history.

The pic below shows the thumbnails with "Opens with: Unknown application". As soon as I assign, no more thumbnail...

When Click On Thumbnail In Photo File Getting Error Message?

Apr 3, 2016

Windows 10 entered my computer when the auto update for windows 8.1 came on. My computer went bad! Spent about 10 hours on the phone with Microsoft techs. For example, I sent an e-mail to some friends with photos (not in attachments, but straight on the e-mail).

When the person received the e mail and opened the attachment with a photo, they gained entry to my total personal photo collection! I am now back to windows 8.1, one drive has been disabled. However, I am left with the problem that When I go to my folder with my photos and click on a thumbnail to enlarge it, I get an error message. The photo won't enlarge.

Keeps Randomly Hanging

Feb 23, 2016

Bought a new HP laptop with 8Mb RAM and 2Tb HDD. Installed Office 2016 and using Panda Gold firewall and AV. Windows frequently freezes when using various programmes and all I can do is remove the battery and disconnect mains power. Now I run without the battery installed as I need to shut it down and reboot frequently. What is causing this problem and how to fix it? Never had this problem with Win 7.

Gaming :: Hanging While Playing Games?

Sep 10, 2015

Whenever i try to launch a game on windows 10 i can play normally for 3-20 minutes before Windows hangs (perm Freeze) and i have to restart.

I am having this problem on all the games i have tried (roblox, besiege, terraria, minecraft, team fortress 2) except pokemon tcgo, even browser games will crash. I have reinstalled Windows several times and the problem persists even after updating drivers. My pc was originally working fine and then it started doing this afer i installed .net fremework 3.5 for a game i installed (other games where working fine).

I did once even encounter a BSOD (KMODE_exception_not_handled) sometimes it even crashes at random (i am on a clean install) after inspecting pc i found my psu fan was not working.

Mouse Cursor Hanging Up In Corners

Aug 17, 2015

I am new to using Windows 10 - 'just upgraded from Windows 7 about 3 days ago. So far I'm enjoying it except for the trouble I'm having with my mouse cursor. Any time I transfer to another monitor (I run a 3 monitor setup), my mouse cursor gets stuck if I try to move to the next screen via the corners of my screens.

I've read everything I could on every forum I could regarding registry edits and disabling various features and nothing seems to work. As far as registry editing goes, everything I read is for Windows 8.1 and my machine doesn't even HAVE the registry keys mentioned in those work around. It's very frustrating and counter intuitive to keeping my Windows experience productive and ultimately a bit of a deal breaker.

Drivers/Hardware :: Hanging For A While In Boot

Jan 3, 2016

I would like to share this situation over my HP dv6-61xx Laptop which hangs for some time (I can't say how the average time it takes) during boot. Every time it stuck on black screen during boot (before get into login screen), with no CPU neither HDD activity . It should boot really fast according to my hardware specification but it won't!

I have latest BIOS updated on my laptop and also just installed a brand new SSD (firmware updated) and it didn't changed the boot time.

My intention is to open this thread in order to publish my situation that can be the same that other users. I didn't find any similar related issue over the internet. So I find very important to start debugging it since now and see how far we can go.

Windows Explorer Search Function Hanging

Dec 9, 2015

I don't have the vocabulary yet to state exactly what is happening.

I upgraded from Win 7 and Win 8 on several machines....though I was reasonably happy with Win 7 and Win 8.

After a few months, win explorer started to misbehave on my desktop, but the laptops are not going crazy.

In performing editing and relocation of folders, win explorer was slow to update, and deleted folders were still showing. Certain content seems to hang it up, such a video files. Closing and re-starting WE did not fix the issue and sometimes only a reboot would reset things.

The issue seems to be in the search function. If is always indexing and looking for something and the cursor circle is always in action and the hard drive is working like crazy.

More annoying is that a new windows has shown up with tabs across the top for selecting what is to be displayed and how. I cannot simply get back to the good old WE detailed view that I work with. Where did this new window come from?

Control Panel And Windows Update Hanging

Dec 2, 2015

Don't know where to start really, this is the third time I have had to upgrade from 8.1 to 10 as I keep having problems. The latest started with my printer queue not clearing deleted files and now when I go to control panel it is hanging , will not close down unless I restart the pc( it was fine before the printer problem) now it is continually searching for any latest updates but getting nowhere. I also noticed that when trying to print off photos that it does not always send the files to the print queue. I did reload Gimp the latest version on a couple of days ago, and wonder if this has done something to the registry.

Performance :: System Unresponsive / Hanging And Programs Not Responding

Oct 14, 2015

I just did a fresh install of Windows 8.1 and upgraded to Windows 10. My issue is that the system is unresponsive, programs are not responding. I took a video but I can`t seem to find any possibility to post it here, so you can`t see what I`m going through. It is really annoying, and it`s just messed up. Multitasking hangs, shows programs in the background and what not... What to do?

I`m also thinking it is a memory leak, I have 25-30% RAM use after bootup....

CPU: Intel Celeron N2830 Dual Core @ 2.4GHz
SSD: Corsair Force GT 240GB

Keep Hanging And Using High Disk Usage Partition Order?

Aug 10, 2015

So I've tried multiple different installations of windows 10 on my hp envy 17 (no slug of a machine, i5-12gb ram etc) Stretching back to the previews. I'm also running windows 7 on the laptop in a dual boot situation. The disk has a built in HP recovery partition from the original windows 8 that came with it. I had split the HDD and started dual booting windows 7 as my main OS, but left the other Win 8 OS alone.

When I went to install windows 10 to a new partition from the start, the system became almost unusable. Hanging every few seconds, sometimes taking 1-2 minutes just to write a short series of words as each key press would take ages to register or the mouse wouldn't move. All the troubleshooting showed no particular reason. The only odd standout would be that the disc usage would keep spiking to 99-100% every time, and almost each one of those times it happened as I watched in the task manager/performance manager, i'd be seeing an item at the top usage showing fraction of the normal top write/read speed, something like 1.5mb/s....even with that low a transfer rate, it just kept reporting the disc was at 100% usage while it proceeded to freeze for the next 10 seconds-1 min+.

So I tried re-installing using different methods, different builds, tweaking the paging file and fastboot settings as recommended. Eventually, I figured maybe I'd have more luck booting up the existing windows 8 partition and doing the "get windows 10" upgrade root over the dvd/usb upgrades and clean installs route I had tried. No luck. Marginally better. I've already tried getting proper drivers/upgrades. I've tweaked settings and tested the disc in multiple ways. No errors or issues. If I restarted an install, I never just reinstalled over top, it was wiped to rule out cross contamination. One thing I haven't covered yet is this.

During the installs, I originally had issues with being told I couldn't install to "this gpt partition" That would be fixed by using rufus to make the bootable usb with the file structure. When I try these installs/win 10 logins, it's been either as regular uefi boot mode OR legacy mode (windows 7 support) So i've ruled out the boot mode as a source...I think. A few times I received a message about the partitions not being in the optimal/preffered order by the windows 10 installer. After having read about the issue at the directed ms link, it sounds like it could be an issue. I include the following screen shot of the partition manager, as I don't want to mess with the wrong partitions. Windows 10 is C drive in this case. The partitions before are either recovery or boot partitions. For what system/os

Recovered Data Hard Drive Slow And Hanging

Feb 5, 2016

I use a 2 drive set up, a small solid state for my operating system and whatever game I'm currently into, and a 2TB storage drive.
My storage drive (D:) bombed and I took it in for data recovery. The tech saved about 1.3TB of 1.6 used. He put the image onto my new drive and got it going again. However when I try to access explorer or anything pertaining to D: it hangs for about 45 seconds before giving me access. I ran CCleaner first off to knock out registry entries that lost their home but haven't seen any improvement.
What else should I do to get this thing back in order? I'm on Windows 10.
