    Hi, I've got a quick question about seeing thumbnails in a file folder in Windows Explorer on Win7.
    I can see .jpg thumbnails but not .cdr, .pdf etc.
    Any idea how I can get them back? (I'm sure they used to be there)
    I've spent all day following posts and tips but I keep running into a roadblock in that everyone says to, among other things, go to Control Panel, Performance Information and Tools/Adjust Visual Effects/Visual Effects and tick "Show thumbnails instead of icons", my problem is that I don't have a 'show thumbnails instead of icons' option on my list. I've checked my laptop (also Win 7 upload_2017-6-19_16-7-12.png ) and it's not there either. Any suggestions? Thanks Chris
    p.s. Attached screenshot shows what I am looking for but don't have. upload_2017-6-19_16-7-12.png

    Thanks John, Worked like a dream for .pdf's. I assume the same principle applies for .cdr and .psd files so I'll have a search within those programs and see what I find.
    Thanks again
    Chris
