View Full Version : File preview on thumbnails

31-08-2010, 04:50 PM
On my previous Vista & Win 7 beta OS' i could preview a file on large thumnails. This was true for docs, pictures and even video. It would show first frame of video as the thumnail. Can't make this happen on my Win 7 x64. All settings have been checked. eg UNchecking "always show icons, never thumbnails".
It does work for Some pics but not on the vids anymore. Was this a feature they didn't carry over into x64? Or is there a setting or service i have forgotten?

Open computer, click on the icon beside the ? on the right. You can also play vids within computer in Win7

The icon next to ?. Not the ? icon itself

says no preview available. Note my previous comment of use on irfanview.
Would indicate it is possible.
