Details Pane No longer showing previews

Question: Details Pane No longer showing previews

The details pane used to show a thumbnail preview of the first page of Adobe Acrobat documents when I selected the file. This was extremely helpful to me due to the nature of how I file these documents, as I didn't have to open the files - I only had to select them. As of this morning, the details pane only shows the name of the document and does not display a thumbnail preview of the first page. How do I fix this? Thank you!!

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

Have recently discovered that whenever I double click on a picture to view it in the picture viewer, it comes up with the border but the actual picture doesn't show up.

At the same time, whenever I use Windows Movie Maker, if I import pictures into it, they show up in the preview window when I left click on them at first, but when I drag them down onto the video editing track, they no longer show up on the preview.

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

Also try running CHKDSK to check the drive.

After I've used one of my external HDDs at TAFE, my PC claims that it is "Read-only" and it takes several CHKDSK commands to fix the problem.
Of course after CHKDSK is finished, it says that there weren't any problems.

In Windows 8.1, I want to customize the properties displayed in the Details Pane for ALL of my MP3s . (That is, I do not mean removing/modifying the properties on an individual MP3/music file. I mean choosing what gets displayed in the Details Pane for all music files.)
In XP (which I love and miss), I do believe the Details Pane could be customized easily, but I see no way to do that in 8.1. For example, I want to display Artist, Album, Year, Track #, Size, and Duration ONLY. How do I remove Rating, Genre, Title, etc.
Also, can I remove the "breadcrumbs" (...) and have the full line displayed? In XP, everything was displayed. Now you have to hover over something to see it. How is that better?
I miss XP's file manager!

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Here is a screen-shot of the details pane for a selected .mkv video file on my laptop, this is what I want it to display on my pc.
 

Answer:Solved: Windows explorer details pane for videos problem

Is the folder set as a "Video" type?
Look at the properties of the folder, and there you will see a drop down list for the type.

The other day I noticed that all of the icons and previews (for images) were not showing when I am in a program and open a window for Save As../Open, etc. This happens in all programs. Attached is an example.

When I open the file location from within my computer all icons and previews work.

Things I have tried so far:

Control Panel>Advanced System Settings>Performance Settings - Made sure Show Thumbnails instead of icons is check.

Going through every folder and making sure in folder options that always show icons, never thumbnails was unchecked. I have tried numerous different scenarios.

I even went and installed custom icons. That is why it now shows some icons. Before it showed no icons at all.

I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes to settings in windows and have been running Windows 7 since it came out. If anybody knows anything else I can try, please let me know.

Thank you for your help

Answer:adjust file preview size on file explorer details pane

There seems to be a minimum size which is pre-defined, you cannot make it smaller. The preview and details pane size is set by the DetailsContainerSizer binary value in the Registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer
I do not know of way to make the thumbnail larger in the details pane. It is larger in the preview pane.

Most of my pictures do not show up fully in the preview pane. Sometimes they show up completely, but usually they only load a sliver of the picture and the rest of the preview is a solid color. See the picture for examples. Format and size don't seem to have any effect on the issue, sometimes 36mp images load fine, sometimes 1mp images only load the top few rows of pixels... There doesn't seem to be much method to the madness, even the same picture will load fully or partially when I click back and forth to it. I always have plenty of memory, CPU and graphics power to display the images, it doesn't matter if I'm running one monitor or 2, explorer only or a bunch of other programs as well.

Answer:Preview Pane not showing full picture

This problem i do not think is related to Windows, as images to left show fine as thumbnails, be only settings i can think of checking in Windows would be due to icons or thumbnails in folder options.

Question, did try this in Windows Photo viewer or do you have any other image viewers, Photoshop program ? You say a bunch of others programs, this what you meant ? Only other guesses would be due to if using dual monitors, settings there or graphics card issues. Besides other graphics, how is graphics card running, are the drivers up to date ? Unless this is in anyway related to the pictures themselves. Also if i look close i believe see some thumbnails to left did not completely open ans is this coming from an external device, if so, what type, HDD, flash drive ? Could be slow response, if hard drive run defrag and error checking.

.
In File Explorer, if a folder is selected in the left navigation pane, the normal behaviour is for the right pane to display sub-folders of that selected folder.

The attached screenshot shows strange behaviour.

If the library "1Documents" is selected in the left pane, there are three sub-folders: Documents, Downloads, and Downloads. (The Downloads folder with the yellow icon is an empty folder that I can't remove. It's discussed in another post.)

I would expect to see exactly the same three sub-folders in the right pane.

In fact, the entire combined contents of Documents and Downloads are shown. You can see that "Anki" is displayed twice. One instance of Anki is in the Downloads folder. The other instance is data that is used by Anki, and is in the Documents folder.

BTW: "Beyond Compare" is a data file in the Documents folder. All other visible files in the right pane are in the Downloads folder.

How can I rectify this issue so that only three folders are shown in the right pane?

Thanks.

Answer:Why is the right pane of File Explorer showing the wrong contents?

I assume you have been moving the location of your default Windows libraries. Have you considered, with a full copy of your data offline, resetting the location without copying your files back to c: drive. Then redoing it. Could I ask how you did the move? Did you use the Windows "Move" facilities found on the "Location" tab when you look at the library properties?

I am going through and renaming my pictures. I click on a picture. It shows up in the preview pane. I then rename the file. After renaming the file I click on the <Tab> key to move to and rename the next picture. However, the preview pane does not show this new picture. It continues to show the previous picture that I just changed. The preview pane used to work where it would show the new picture after hitting the <Tab> key. The left and right arrow keys do not work. I am editing the name of the picture at the time. The left and right arrow keys will move within the name of the file that I am editing. If I press the Enter key the pictures automatically reorder themselves. I then have to go all the way back up and find the pictures that have not been renamed. That is a pain. Using the Tab key goes directly to the next picture so I can edit that name. However, the arrow keys do show the picture in the preview pane after I hit the Enter key.

In the preview pane to the right it displays images as if a layer of a solid colour has just been thrown over the majority of it. It seems as though it just decides to stop loading the image and use a colour available in it to fill in the rest. The image itself is fine, it's just the way it's being displayed. The only way I have been able to get around this is to open up the file in Paint and save it, which doesn't always work. It's tedious to keep doing this and I was wondering if there was something I could try and do to fix the problem.

Hi,
Four days ago, suddenly file list pane disappeared when I try to save a document. At first file list was absent only when printing file to a PDF but now I'm not able to see file list pane in any of the saves in any document. I had updated Acrobat X when I had received an automatic update and I suspect that is when that happened so today I removed Acrobat X and problem did not go away so I made a fresh install of the version that was working for me but the problem still persists. I now have to type the name of the file I want to save while before I would select an existing file from the list and then modify the name slightly to reflect the version number. I have shown this problem to a few techies and they are stumped. I have tried to search for this problem but have not found a solution either.

This one is getting really annoying. I have noticed that sometimes when using Windows Explorer, if I rename a folder, the right hand pane shows the correct (new) folder name, but the left hand pane still displays the old folder name.

As a matter of fact, even if I right click on the folder name on the left hand pane, and choose "Rename", and then rename it there, when I hit Enter to save the name change, the folder name on the left (that was just highlighted and changed) will revert back to the original name....but the name in the right hand pane will show the change.

For some reason, it just doesn't seem to want to update the view in the left hand pane. And then, to top it off, after some undetermined amount of time, the left hand pane will "refresh" to show the new folder name, but it will STILL show the old folder in the list as well. If I right-click the parent folder and choose "Open in New Window", the view is correct, but the original window still shows the old folder names.

This may only happen after my Explorer windows (I usually have 4 or 5 up) have been open for a long time, as I tried to reproduce with new windows and the behavior is normal (left hand pane updates view immediately).

I've reported it already, but just curious if anyone else has experienced this odd behavior.

Hi CorrsFan

I think this is just a part of it being a Beta still. I have tried to delete the HomeGroup section, and while it goes for awhile as soon as it refreshes it's back. Just like some sections of the Registry is locked out and some permissions can't be changed, these things will all be sorted out by RC1. Renaming any system item is locked down in the registry and Left (Navigation) Pane items seem to be a part of this lockout.

I would like a tile on my start screen showing the ownership details of my phone. This could be useful if I leave my phone on a table at my golf club to enable a speedy return. I was hoping the "me" tile could be adapted, but I'm not sure.

Answer:Lumia 920 tiles showing phone owner details

No idea about how to create a tile on the start screen but you could take a photo of your details you wish to display and set it to the lock screen as a background? Have a look at Personalise the lock screen here.

I have various domains registered with 1and1 for email purposes. Last weekend I built my first website using 1and1 websitebuilder. I am fairly satisfied with the results, but there is one major problem - when I enter the site into Google, the correct URL is shown, but the details about the website relate to a website my son built about a band he was in at the time. The website is about educational services so this is obviously very confusing for anyone interested in that subject and unlikley to win many new customers! I have spoken to 1and1 at length about this and inserted key words and generated mete tags but they tell me there is nothing else which can be done now and I must wait until Google visits the site and updates it's detailas and no-one know how long that might be. Can anyone tell if there is any way of getting this fixed quickly? emailing the Google webmaster for instance. I also need to understand how this can happen - it it IP address specific or hosting company specific? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Answer:Google showing correct URL but incorrect website details

Hi
If you are seeing content that came from another site at the time your new site was crawled, the most likely issue is a configuration error at the host. In virtually every case where this has arisen, that has been the cause.
However, not much more can be said without knowing the site(s) concerned.

got brand new lumia 640xl but the glance screen does not show date or weather or background photo.
although notifications are shown by the glance screen.

Answer:[L640XL] Glance screen not showing details except time?

It's either in battery save mode, or you didn't enable it (date, detailed status, quick status, background photo) in Glance. Also MS Weather won't show up unless it's opened in Lock screen and stored on the phone. BTW only MS Weather will show weather, the other weather apps will only show their background. You also have to choose Calendar in Lock screen to show detailed status...did you try to read up on how to or did you just assume things would enable themselves ? many think they do.

...don't know why it starting happening but now all Win Save As...dialog boxes not showing file/folder contents of current locations but only details of particular file being saved.

Image Attached

Edit: Turns out user had dragged DETAILS area of dialog box all the way to top of pane, obscuring the files/folder section of the dialog box. Well, that was simple...in the end anyway.

Answer:Save As...Dialog Boxes showing only file details...

I'm having this same problem. Can you please tell me how to fix this? I can't seem to find the "details" area of the dialog box in order to drag it back to where it should be.

Has anyone any idea why outlook express 6 should cease to display the mandatory information about each email in each folder. All folders have the problem. The information usually displayed about each email is sender, subject date etc. The headers appear as they should only the data is missing. All that appears now is the complete first email that is in the folder.
I have tried every option in the view layout.

Another interesting thing is that if I remove the tick from the view email in preview pane nothing happens, it is still displayed.

I have thought about reinstalling but I would rather find the problem why first.

As it says in the title SN shows as 000000 and part number as Ver. 1.
Neither of which are remotely accurate. How do I change them? I have tried removing and reloading an updated version (of each) with no joy.
Any ideas?

Answer:Desktop Assistant and Service Station showing wrong product details

> As it says in the title SN shows as 000000 and part number as Ver. 1.

What serial number and part number (model number???) do you mean exactly?
Do you mean the notebook?s serial and model number?

These details are part of the DMI string.
Usually after the mainboard exchange such DMI string needs to be updated using correct data.
In case the DMI will not be updated, the data like serial number and others will not be shown correctly.
