After a recent Windows 10 update on my laptop and my work computer the date no longer shows on the taskbar. The clock is visible and the calendar pops up when you click on it, but no date. No settings were changed by me and everything is enabled as far as I can tell. Is this just some sort of glitch or is there something I am missing to bring the date back?
On W7 i had my nokia lumia 900 unlocked and could plug it into my pc via the usb and it showed up as another drive.this allowed me to add remove music files etc. since installing W10 it no longer shows up?Indeed w10 seems to be changing things that it wants without me okaying it,if this continues i will be going back to w7. Q: How can i get my phone showing up as a drive i on w10.
I have unchecked the option to 'show icons instead of thumbnails' (view>options>folder options) and I have checked 'show icons' (performance>advanced) but still I get icons instead of thumbnails. I have closed and restarted file explorer multiple times to no change. I have posted the screenshot below to show the current settings.
I'm running Windows 10 and have been since it was first released. This morning I was playing a game, and my sound stopped working, so I rebooted my computer to see if that would fix it. It fixed the problem, but I had no icons pinned on my taskbar, no time & date, and the search and start button would not work. After hard-booting the computer for a second time, there was still nothing. When I open a program the icon doesn't show on the taskbar.
Since I installed windows 10 ( clean install ) the autohide worked great.. now all of a sudden although it is checked and everything it simply does not work at all.. It makes it very hard to work on my sites and other sites that have cookie notices displayed on the bottom of the page.
Changed something and can no longer see Taskbar on bottom, only the sides. Also lost the search bar. Tried tuning off autohide and every setting involving the Taskbar. Even tried shrinking the screen through resolution. I have to put Taskbar on the side to be able to see it.
The more I try to customize anything in Win 10 the worse it gets. Can't even seem to reset everything to default.
Should windows 10 (by default) be displaying thumbnails within explorer for m4a files? I'm browsing my iTunes media folder and I can see thumbnails only for .mp4, .mp3, .m4p but not for m4a. If I play an m4a file within media player or iTunes I can see the album art. It's just not on the file when viewing it from explorer. The settings are correct. I have no additional codecs installed (or Quicktime though that's prob not relevant). Can it only display them with a codec pack downloaded? Seems strange that it does display thumbnails for the m4p protected files though.
The caveat is that if look at an album folder that contains m4a files then I can see the album art preview on the folder, but double clicking into the folder where the specific songs reside just shows the default windows music icon. Whilst m4p, I don't see album preview on the folder, but clicking into the folder shows the individual songs with their album art thumbnail.
Recently windows started having a problem displaying thumbnails for JPGs. If I load a folder of images it shows them all for a moment, then swiftly changes loads of them to white blanks.
A bit more investigating and I realise it's only for image files over 10MB. I'm a photographer, so looking at images litterally all day, so it's quite an annoyance! Or course I use other software for sorting, organising, resizing etc, but plenty of times you just want to load a folder and see the images.
Here's a screengrab, sorting a folder by size, anything larger than 10MB is a white blank icon:
I was trying to save an image from the internet and my fingers slipped on a key. Since then every time the save-as box opens, where the files should show, it is just grey. I will attach a picture to show the issue. Need getting back the thumbnails which should show where the grey bit is.
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.
my video thumbnails wont update. It shows me the preview of the first video thumbnail but when i select another, the preview remains the same in the preview pane. I use the "List" view. i am a video editor who just pdated to windows 10
My video thumbnails in preview pane wont update. It shows me the preview of the first video thumbnail but when i select another, the preview remains the same in the preview pane.
I was using windows 8.1 -- and didn't have this problem -- when I upgraded to Windows 10. I like everything about 10 so far EXCEPT this.
Someone in another forum recommended installing VLC media player and associating all video files with it. This worked for some users who were experiencing this issue, but it didn't work for me unfortunately.
I was using my laptop last week to find all taskbar icons were all using a default icon and that the desktop icons and file explorer icons had all gone completely blank (no icons or Thumbnails).I also cant right click and get Properties to work on Drives in file explorer.System Restore no longer works, I get a "Catastophic failure" warning dialogue every time i open the panel to create restore points.If I open the "system" menu the written options down the left hand side are no longer there. If I open Control Panel and it is set to display by category there is nothing on the screen, but if I choose view small icons then the text comes up but no icons.Apart from these problems all programs function properly on the laptop, most icons are working on my start menu.
Was originally a Windows 8.1 installation upgraded to Win10 about 6 months ago. What has caused this, no new hardware or software. No changes of anything. My laptop always runs problem free!I did however notice and only saw this once, a system restore point from 6am in the morning, seems to of been created by a windows update while I was asleep, but after I saw that and tried to restore I have never seen it again, but looking on windows updates there was no new update that day.Tried setting up a new user but the issue exists in the new account also. I have also done virus checks and disk checks, restarted explorer.exe. No luck in safe mode either. Reinstalled graphic card drivers. Tried lots of delete and rebuild icon cache suggestions. Used windows defender to scan and Malwarebytes
Ran Dism commands Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth Ran sfc /scannow
I ran chkdsk /scan but nothing found and this error only appeared once on a chkdsk scan
I got the free Windows 10 upgrade yesterday and everything seemed to work really well until I tried using the Search Bar.The problem is that although search results are returned (The indexing seems to be correct) the images displayed under the Photos section are mostly missing their thumbnails which makes the feature pretty useless.Some images have thumbnails but most don't and it isn't any specific file type that does or not display it just seems random.
My laptop is displaying the wrong thumbnails after i upgrade to windows 10. When you open the file explorer and preview an file the next file your going to preview will be same thumbnail to the first one even the other files.
I installed Windows 10 last week as an upgrade from Windows 7, and the internet part is working good. But something with the file explorer didn't work. The Document, Pictures, Music, and Video files are still there, but the thumbnails load slowly, or not at all. If it means anything, there's a green bar that slowly moves across the top of the screen.
If you start up the Windows Photos app, it opens with a screen displaying all the photos in your user/pictures folder in thumbnail form which I find highly annoying. I want it to start with a blank screen. Is there a way to do this? I thought I might get it to clear up by pointing the folder it monitors to an empty folder and removing the user/pictures folder from settings but the thumbnails are still there...
I just installed the BIG Windows 10 update (can't remember what it was called, 1511 or something) and so far it seems all right, except my desktop is a little different. One, my desktop background picture was removed and needs to be reset, no big deal, but all my Microsoft Word files open in Wordpad now (yes, I have a current license, just bought 2016 a few weeks ago--Excel comes up normal...) and the thumbnails have these mysterious blue arrows that point at each other in the corners. I think they might have something to do with file compression? But the arrows are also on some of my program icons in the taskbar, too.

I tried this and it didn't work. But together with what I did next it probably worked.
Open up the folder with the pictures and click on the View tab Next click on Options to the far right Then Click on Change folder and search options This opens up an options menu Navigate to the view tab uncheck the box that says Always show icons, never thumbnails And Check the box that says Display file icon on thumbnails.
Since updating to Windows 10, whenever I open file folders to view jpgs, the files' thumbnails are a generic blue mountain icon instead of thumbnails of the images themselves. How do I get the icons to go back to being thumbnail images again? Is there a command or menu option that will change this for all jpgs in my folders rather than having to change one by one?
