    Windows 7 canít display thumbnails of PNG files

    I bought a new laptop and installed Windows 7 into it. Even though the system is working fine, it is not showing the thumbnail view of PNG files. It is possible to see the thumbnail view of other files. What should I do to get this view with PNG files?

    Open up any folder on your system and locate the ‘Organize’ button below the menu bar. After finding out that button, make a single click on it. A menu will pop up on the left side of the screen. Navigate through that menu and click the ‘Folder and Search Options’ option. After that, a small window will pop up on the screen from which press the ‘View’ tab. Then, locate both ‘Always show icons’ and ‘never thumbnails’ options. Clear off the checkbox next to both of these options. Finally, press the ‘OK’ button available on the screen and see whether the issue is resolved or not.

    Generally thumbnail displays in the pc,but sometime it happens that you can not see the thumbnail and thumbnail disappear from your pc for specified file.here you also have same problem that you can not see the thumbnail of png files.

    thumbnail not shown due to
    --> file is deleted of corrupted in file association
    --> Re create the file association and some file not exist in that.

    Display the thumbnail in windows 7

    --> Go to "control panel" and select "basic" on left side menu
    --> In search preference , check the box "show automatic thumbnail"
    --> save the changes

    If you still facing same problem ,then try to solve it by using 2nd method given below

    --> Go to "start" and then select "Run"
    --> type command "regsvr32.exe/i shdocvw.dll
    --> press "ok"

    If you still facing the same problem , then you should have to update the windows 7 ,then you can see the thumbnail in your windows 7.

    HELLO FRIEND,

    This looks be an issue with the icon cache on the computer;

    rebuilding the icon cache might fix the issue.

    Follow the below procedure


    Rebuilding the Icon Cache Database


    1. Close all folder windows that are currently open.

    2. Launch Task Manager using the CTRL+SHIFT+ESC key sequence, or by running taskmgr.exe.

    3. In the Process tab, right-click on the Explorer.exe process and select End Process.

    4. Click the End process button when asked for confirmation.

    5. From the File menu of Task Manager, select New Task (RunÖ)

    6. Type CMD.EXE, and click OK

    7. In the Command Prompt window, type the commands one by one and press ENTER after each command:

    CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local

    DEL IconCache.db /a
    EXIT

    8. In Task Manager, click File, select New Task (RunÖ)

    9. Type EXPLORER.EXE, and click OK.



    ALL THE BEST
