Resolved Question:

My Windows 7 computer used to have all of "MY Pictures" as thumbnail pictures, so that I could see which pictures I wanted to pull up. NOW, ALL of my pictures are a icon of a camera! Which means I have no idea what that picture is until I open it up. HOW DO I GET MY PICTURE THUMBNAILS BACK? THANKS, XXXXX XXX@XXXXXX.XXX

Shefin :
Hello! Thank you for your question. I am Shefin and I look forward to helping you with your issue today.
Shefin :
Please let me know when you are ready.
Customer:

I am here

Shefin :

Open My COmputer/Computer.

Customer:

I did, but then I can't see what you are writing because it takes up my screen!

Shefin :

Okay.

Shefin :

I will help you with a picture.

Shefin :

On the right corner of the screen.

Shefin :

Click on that and change the listings style.

Shefin :

Are you able to do that?

Customer:

No, because I don't see that on my screen. If I enlarge the picture you sent, nothing happens. I usually have this setting on my computer, but not right now. The only settings I have on my screen is your sign in and the little toolbar

Shefin :

Please minimize this chat, and on the picture folder that you want to change as thumbnails, please check for the option.

Shefin :

Are you able to do that?

Customer:

Now I have a word list of all my pictures but not the actual thumbnail of the pictures themselves, like I used to have. I need those pictures back. And, I don't see a place for "thumbnails".

Shefin :

Please wait, I will send you more pictures.

Shefin :

Please watch the video below and follow the instructions.

Customer:

I did everything the video said, but I still do not have pictures, just a word list on My Pictures and still the camera icon on Pictures!

Shefin :

Okay.

Shefin :

We wil try another solution.

Customer:

Do I have to shut down the computer to reset it to show the pictures

Shefin :

It is big in size. RIght?

Shefin :

Not a small icon.

Customer:

What is big in size? The camera icon, yes, it's a small camera icon.

Shefin :

As the same size as thumbnail?

Customer:

I don't know! I think my pictures were a little larger than the little camera icon.

Shefin :

Okay.

Shefin :

Open the page that you want to see as thumbnails, and click Organize in the toolbar, and then click Folder and Search Options.

Shefin :

Have you done that?

Shefin :

Or get into Control panel and select Folder Options.

Shefin :

Have you done that?

Customer:

Yes, and under View it said to always show icons for thumbnails. I unchecked that, but it didn't help.

Shefin :

Click Ok and close that.

Customer:

Not sure what you meant by open the page that I want to see as thumbnails, so what I opened was one of the pictures that I need to see. Was that correct?

Customer:

I clicked OK and closed it.

Shefin :

You see the organize option. RIght? Do not click it.

Customer:

OK, yes, I saw the organize option, but I did click it on. So, do I need to go back and just get to that point, but now click it on. If so, what do I do when I get there?

Shefin :

Check the picture, and check if you see the small down arrow.

Shefin :

Marked in the red circle.

Shefin :

Change the options and check.

Shefin :

Are you able to change that?

Customer:

I am totally confused! Any chance you can call me? I keep losing you when I change screens and then I don't know what to do.

Shefin :

I apologize that I cannot contact you by phone.

Shefin :

Please let me check, if I can find a video for you.

Customer:

I don't know which options to change.

Shefin :

Please watch the video below.

Shefin :

Are you able to change the settings?

Customer:

OK!! Got it. I needed to make the pictures folder the large icon! Mission accomplished. Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Shefin :

I am glad to hear that!
