    What to do when Explorer Preview Pane doesn’t show preview in Windows 8 Pro?

    When I enable Preview Pane in the explorer, no preview appears. How can I fix this?

    This happens if thumbnail previews are turned off. Turn on the Thumbnail preview will fix this. To turn on Thumbnails, go to Control Panel. In the search field on the right, type folder and search. Now click on Folder options. Go the View tab in the dialog box. Just below the Files and Folders category in the Advanced Settings box, you will see ‘Always show icons, never thumbnails’ checkbox. Uncheck it to turn on thumbnails and click OK.
