Make Win 7 show thumbnails and details for more video file types?

Question: Make Win 7 show thumbnails and details for more video file types?

For example, for MKV videos Windows 7 shows no more information than it does for text files. I'd like to have thumbnails and data like duration, pixel dimensions, video and audio bitrate etc. as it shows for other types.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I've been googling around but can't seem to find an answer to this seemingly simple question. The documents and spreadsheets on my desktop show up as a thumbnail preview of the file (which is kinda stupid because all of the documents and spreadsheets look the exact same). So I want these to just show the Word or Excel icon instead. I know you can go to:

Explorer>Tools>Folder Option>View>Files and Folders>"Always show icons, never thumbnails"

But then my picture files just show the Windows Picture Viewer icon instead of the picture thumbnail. I'm just wondering if there's a way to assign icon or thumbnail settings to specific file types or extensions? I'd like my pictures to have thumbnails but all other file types to show only icons. I'm currently using Windows 7 and system details are in the sig...
 

Answer:(Win7) How to show icons for some file types and thumbnails for others?

If you don't explicitly tell Word or Excel to save a thunbmail of the file along with the file, it will use the default Word/Excel document icon (which happens to look like a document from either of those programs). Can't you just change the default icon to something else?

To answer your question, though, no, I don't think it's possible.

Hi, I have a Windows Vista and I'd like all file types from all Media players to display a thumbnail of the video in Windows Explorer as opposed to just showing an icon of the file type. The problem is that in Vista, it only shows thumbnails of Windows Media Player videos and not videos that use VLC Media Player (except .VOB which it does show) or Quicktime. I've done some research online and I've seen that I need to merge a Registry file into the Registry Editor with certain Registry keys in it, so I tried doing it for .MP4 files:
----------------------------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mp4\shellex]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mp4\shellex\{3D1975AF-0FC3-463d-8965-4DC6B5A840F4}]
@=""
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mp4\shellex\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
@="{c5a40261-cd64-4ccf-84cb-c394da41d590}"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mp4\shellex\{E357FCCD-A995-4576-B01F-234630154E96}]
@="{9DBD2C50-62AD-11D0-B806-00C04FD706EC}"
----------------------------------------------------------
After I entered the above into the Registry I restarted my PC, and nothing happened, the .MP4 videos still show no thumbnails.

Any suggestions or help is welcome and thanked in advance!

I for some reason am not able to get a thumbnail view of any of my .cbr & .cbz files anymore. I had to reinstall Windows 7 a few days ago and now no thumbnails show for my comicbook files. Pdf's show fine once I locate them with Adobe Pro. And usually when I locate them with a certain comicbook reader program they show up as thumbnails even when viewing in windows explorer. But not now. ANyone know how to make cbr and cbz files show thumbnails in windows explorer?

Answer:How to make cbr and cbz files show thumbnails?

Do you have many comic books? If not, changing the extensions to rar, then extracting the cover file and naming that file the same as the comic book name will handle it. If you have extensive collections of comics, then you're probably out of luck because this is an on-going issue with comic readers. Many developers are working on this issue and I am myself waiting for them to release updates that would show the cover thumbnail...no fix yet as far as I'm aware of, although this is a low priority thing for me so I've not checked on it lately.

When I do a search on how to sort, I get a Tutorial that tells me to open the "View" Menu item.

However, as you can see from the attached, I don't have a VIEW menu on my Folder.

I would like to sort these by file type so that I can save them to a CD.

What am I doing wrong here?

Answer:I can't sort by File Types. What happened to File Details?

I attached a word doc with two pics in it. I have no idea wht these [IMG] links are.

Essentially, I created a new folder, put in some music files, and wanted to sort them by file type, but I have no option for that. I can only sort by List, Details, Tiles and Content.

Win 7 was easy to make all your folders show details view and not what windows thought you should view it as.

I can't find a way to do that in Win 8. I have googled it many times and all attempts have failed. I have changed several folders to details view only to have them revert back to what windows wants me to view them as.

I would like to do this for all my folders and libraries, which I understand may not work for libraries.

Can someone please help me. Is there a registry setting I can set to force all views to be detail view?

Answer:Folder View want to make it all folders show details

It's pretty much the same as Win 7, but to get to is is a little different, first open My Computer and Open the C drive and choose Detail View, then hit Options:

Then hit "Change Folder Options" and it is the same, choose "Apply to All folders"

Windows XP & IE 8 .

Answer:Default Settings for 'Choose File To Upload', Displays 'Details' vs 'Thumbnails'

The default is list, not details and no you can't change it that I know of and I'm pretty sure if not absolutely. I wish there was. One of those silly Windows things.
As to your second question, some websites employ technology that allows multiple uploads. The flash uploader here for instance. It's not something in XP that one can change.

Hello there,

I'm using Windows 7 just like you all. Ultimate edition, 64-bit. The system is running perfectly without any problems, but I got one issue after two weeks of using Win7.

The problem is that video preview thumbnails are not showing up. "Show thumbnails instead of icons" in view options is checked.

Take a look. On the left side is my HDV camcoder captured files, .mt2 format. But on the right side is my video folder, contains .mp4 and .wmv formats. As you can see .mp4 .wmv thumbnails are missing.



Maybe this is the place where I finally will got the solution.

Answer:Video thumbnails won't show up

Sorry but as I am not able to read the file extensions on the right hand image, they are too fuzzy, I am not in a position to help.
Perhaps if you produce a straightforward screenshot it might help. Also where did the files come from? Are they downloaded or from a camcorder or where?

Hi, yesterday I don't know what I did but suddenly video thumbnails disappeared, so I reinstalled K-Lite Codec Pack MEGA version. I'm using a laptop with Windows 8.1 x64. VLC is the default media player. I've installed MPC-HC and K-Lite Codec Pack MEGA. Everything is up to date.

Once I reinstalled K-Lite MEGA pack, thumbnails appeared again, but now something's wrong. When I open the "Videos" folder, VLC icons don't appear. All icons are blank (there's no icon, just blank space with the file's name below) until the thumbnail is loaded.

Before, ALL icons appeared (VLC icon) and then the thumbnails got loaded. If I refreshed, the thumbnails didn't start to load again, the window blinked for 1 millisecond and then everything was already loaded.

Now, if I refresh, it starts all over again, all icons are blank and the thumbnails start to load again.

I've reinstalled MPC-HC, K-Lite MEGA pack, Disk cleanup thumbnails, show only icons, apply and then uncheck that option... Nothing changes

I don't understand anything. Here's a screenshot in the middle of the process:
There should be VLC icons instead of those blank spaces, and it shouldn't start to load everything each time I refresh.

Thanks!

Answer:Video icons don't show up until thumbnails are loaded

Question, why did you need the Codec pack to begin with? I find they cause more issues.

All my thumbnails load with no problem with windows media player with exception of some types of video files.

May have to reset. Try SFC.

I've just recently began to use the jump lists more and more. In general they work fine but I use VectorWorks and I imported a .pdf into the application. Now the jump list only displays that imported .pdf but not the .vwx files native to that application.

Hi ZippyDSMlee.

This may not be the right answer but I'll take a shot.

If you go into setting, the looks for Apps. In the Creators Update it has it own box. In Anniversary it is with System.

Click on Default apps, then on the right scroll all the way to bottom and click on Set defaults by app.

When this window open select the app you want to set on left and then over on the lower right you have two options.

Set this program as default - all possible file types that could be owned by program are assigned to this program.

or

Choose defaults for this program - this opens a window of all possible file types that could be assigned but lets you selective pick and choose.
Hope this is what you are looking for.

Why are certain details, such as Frame Height, allowed in Windows Explorer when looking in a specific folder, but are missing when searching the contents of the same folder?

For example, I'm inside a folder (in details view) of video files and ask Explorer to show details of Frame Height. It will show that for certain file types. But when I search for one of the files by name, the Frame Height will be blank for the same file it just showed me the info for.

I recently configured my files and folders to show the "Details" view, using the tutorial, "Windows Explorer Folder View settings":

So far, everything looks fine in Windows Explorer. (I obviously haven't checked every one of hundreds of folders )

However, if I do a download, and click "Save", the download dialog has the view setting "Icons". All sub-directories also have the setting "Icons"

Is there a way to universally change *every* folder to have "Details" as the view option in *every" dialog box?

Answer:How to make Download dialog show "Details" view?

Here's some more info on the folder properties.

A) In Windows Explorer, if I click on any personal folder, such as "Documents". Right-click. Select "Properties".

In the "Customize" tab, the template is "Documents", and "Apply to subfolders" is checked.

Open any sub-folder, or sub-sub-folder. All entries are correct. They all show the "Details" view. This is all fine.

-----------------------------

B) However, when I am downloading a file, the folders show the "Small icons" view, rather than the "Details" view.

For example, in the downloads dialog, click on the "Documents" personal folder. Right-click. Select "Properties".

In the "Customize" tab, the template is "Documents", and "Apply to subfolders" is checked.

However, open any sub-folder. Folders are shown in three columns. If I click "Views", I see "Small icons".

Note that FILES ARE NOT SHOWN.

-----------------------------

C) In the downloads dialog, click on the "Downloads" personal folder. Right-click. Select "Properties".

Everything is identical to B, but now FILES ARE SHOWN.

-----------------------------

It seems to me that registry values used by Windows Explorer and the downloads dialog box are different.

Answer:Thumbnails not displaying: Unchecked 'show icons'/checked 'thumbnails'

When you right click on the folder itself and select properties, there is a tab called customise. In this tab you can select what type of folder you want and choose Pictures. You can have this cascade down to subfolders as well. As for the other settings you mentioned, I usually keep my folder settings as the defaults.

While it looks okay on my computer, when I put the disk in my DVD player, the player doesn't even see it there. Media Player doesn't give any options that I've found and the one DVD I've burned was selected automatically as a "data file."

Hi folks,
I have a problem that I hope someone can help me with. I recently downloaded Total Converter, but unbeknownst to me it also downloaded Total Player - which I didn't want or need - but when I realized it was there I decided to check it out. Unfortunately, it screwed up my audio/video file types. Apparently, because its in all-in-one player, after I uninstalled it - because frankly it sucked as a player - it retained the all-in-one component in my file types under Folder Options. Whenever I change a file tape to play on a different player, it changes all the other audio/video file types with it, forcing me to use just one player - which, for certain reasons, I don't want to do. When I try to change an individual file type under Folder Options itself, as soon as I click "Edit" after inputting the file type, I get a message that says the file type in question is assigned to "totalplayer.file." I've looked everywhere on my computer for a file associated with totalplayer, but I can't find one - as far as I can tell, everything was fully uninstalled when I got rid of it. Can someone tell me what's going on and how I can fix this? Thanks. -Steve

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:

Things I've tried:

1. I have Haali Media Splitter installed (from CoreAVC) options>>explorer integration (yes)>>Thumbnails offset (10000)
2. WMP Playback Pack
3. DivX Preview

None of those worked. I'm running Windows 7 Professional. The KMPlayer is the default to play my MKV files (works great), but I can change that to Windows Media Player if needed to show the details and thumbnails. Any suggestions?

And I can't install DivX Plus Codec Pack like other people have recommend because my laptop isn't connected to the internet (no wireless). To install the other things I've just put the installer on a USB and then installed them from the USB onto my laptop.

Hey there...ok...when I'm in explorer (viewing files not the internet) my View setting sometimes changes from Details to Thumbnails for no reason at all...not it just affects that one folder...so I set it back to Details and it's all good again...the folder seems random...it's been happening to me for a long time...I don't think it's a virus or anything bad...I think it's a flaw or a bug or something...does anyone else have this problem???

Answer:How come my View changes from Details to Thumbnails in Explorer for no reason???

I had the EXACT same problem. I've attached the text below on how to fix it.

Good luck
By default, Windows XP will remember the view settings for the 400 most recently used folders. After that, XP will begin overwriting the data of the oldest folder, and its view setting will be lost. The information is stored in the registry by two keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell
and
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam

These keys can be modified to make XP remember more folder settings.

Open Windows Explorer and go to Tools--Folder Options--View--Advanced Settings. Ensure that "Remember each folder's view settings" is checked.

Open Regedit and go to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell.

Right-click on "Shell", then follow to New--Key--DWORD Value.

Name this item "BagMRU Size" (without quotation marks, but with a space between BagMRU and Size).

Double-click BagMRU Size, give it a Decimal value of 2000, then click OK.

Now go to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam.

Create another BagMRU Size DWORD Value for "ShellNoRoam". Again, give it a Decimal value of 2000, then click OK.

You will have two "BagMRU Size" values equal to 0x000007d0 (2000).

Close the registry and reboot.

Windows XP will now remember 2000 folder view settings instead of 400

Always remember to back up your registry.

I like to view my files/folders as 'Details' rather than as thumbnails...i find them easier to read and it's easier to find what im looking for..

Open any folder and set it to 'Details' view. Click on 'Tools' select 'Folder Options' then the 'View' tab.

In windows 7 there was this feature I loved when you needed to open a file in a program via standard "File -> Open" dialog and if you had the folder with that file already opened in windows exlorer then you would just click that explorer window and your Open File dialog window would instantly display that folder.Afer upgrading to win8 i lost this function and really want it back.just a detailed process because I know it's hard to understand if you never experienced it:1) You have pressed File->Open in some program and Open File Dialog showing you some random folder.2) You have Target_Folder opened in windows explorer3) You click on the windows explorer window4) Open File Dialog automatically switches to that folder and you can just pick your file there without navigating for 2 minutes.

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.

Is there some software to make a demo pc with video clips playing in one corner, a slide show going in another corner, and weather information or a clock in another corner with scrolling text announcements going across the bottom? No internet will be provided so can't really be a web page so maybe no weather either.

Well the idea is to set up my laptop at artists alley at an anime/scifi convention and have a slide show of my digital artwork going in one corner, with video clips of my demonstrations playing in another corner, with a scrolling text of prices and my website link and email and info scrolling across the bottom.

How would I go about doing this?
 

Answer:Prog to make demo pc with video clips playing, weather, slide show + scrolling text

Just to put my two cents in. Even though there will be no internet, it might be simplest to setup a webpage (locally) that would display all the things you want.

Does this need to be interactive? IE. like a kiosk? or is it purely for display? If its display only, a local webpage is your quick fix IMO.

Hi!

I would like to say thank you in advance to anyone who's taken the time to read this post.

I've been getting blue screen crashes for the past month or so and it seems to be getting progressively worse. The BSODs began occurring about once every couple of days, now they seem to happen about 5 times a day. They seem to occur completely randomly - they can happen upon startup to even hours working perfectly and they don't seem to be associated with any particular program that's running. Most of the time the computer will crash with a BSOD but sometimes it will freeze or slow all processes right down (eg mouse would take couple minutes to respond and move to a different place on the screen). I've had this computer for less than a year and it works great in all other aspects (check my profile for specs).

I tried figuring out what was causing the problem and I bluescreenview as well as WinDbg to pinpoint the drivers responsible. The driver causing most of the crashes is ntoskrnl.exe, others are hal.dll, fvevol.sys, HIDCLASS.SYS and Ntfs.sys. When I looked them up they were all part of the Windows Update, and yes, my Windows is completely up to date. WinDbg reported that it was a memory corruption problem but I've run a memory diagnostic test and all seems fine. I'm at a loss as to how to remedy this, please help me out!

Hi Stevenvh,

I like FF also, leme tell you what I just done.

I use win 7 x64, you too have a win 7 64bit OS, so it should work for you too if you do it.

I just downloaded & installed Pale Moon a 64 bit browser and very similar to FF in the GUI but Firefox is created with maximum compatibility in mind, Pale Moon is created with efficiency and speed in mind.

When I installed it, first thing I went to youtube to see it handle flash, it did fine and works with netflix too and netflix uses Silverlight. I read that the adobe 64bit flash will only work with 64bit win 7 so it should work with you.

It's new to me, but it's a native 64bit browser and I like it. It's here Pale Moon - x64 builds

Here's the export of the registry key that I have...
-------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.avi\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
@="{c5a40261-cd64-4ccf-84cb-c394da41d590}"

--------------------------------------------
that was one solution and the other was to unregister and register two dll files "regsvr32 shmedia.dll" and "regsvr32 shimgvw.dll"

That didn't work either. The files I'm referring to are encoded in xvid and I don't know if it's specific to that particular codec because I don't have any avi files that are encoded with another codec. I do have the latest xvid package though, straight from the developers so I don't think that's the problem. I don't want to install a codec package because they come with lots of codecs that I'll probably never use so it just seems like it'll waste space and slow my computer down, but if someone who is more knowledgeable that me thinks that I should try that then I will. Just let me know if I should uninstall ... Read more

Answer:Win XP doesn't show thumbnails for xvid avi's

Having varied codecs does not take up that much space at all, or
slow your pc down. They are nothing more than tools to allow you
to view/hear other media formats. Imo you cant have enough. I
use coles codecs,,Ive also used k-lite codec pack,,With either not
sure if you will be able to see thumbnails, I never pay much attention
to those...

i can watch the embedded videos just fine, but as you can see some of the thumbnails of the videos don't show up.

help

EDIT: oh, and i'm using Firefox 2.0. i had the same problem when i was using the previous version of firefox~ i also tried IE and Opra and non of them worked~

Answer:javascript/flash thumbnails don't show up~

Could be your connection. If you're on a slow connection, sometimes the graphics will time out.

Another option would be to update your Flash, Shockwave, whatever.

None of my images will show as thumbnails in their folders. Well actaully, i lie. All the jpgs that were put on my pc before a couple of weeks ago still show but new ones just show as a large icon. No matter what program i use to open them with they still wont show....Windows 2000

Answer:Images wont show as thumbnails...

I suppose that my answer is too easy, and I run XP, but in Winows Explorer click on the file that is showing the icons, then View and choose thumbnails.

Hi.
There is any way to show an icon instead of thumbnails in folders and and keep showing thumbnails for files?

Answer:Show icons instead of thumbnails only for folders

NO ... and the same for the Desktop.
The only way is to shut off all thumbnail viewing use a 3rd party thumbnail viewer.

in thumbnail viewing mode (for any file type whatsoever) file names are blank in xp, they have no names - only if i switched to title, icons, list or details mode, a file's name will reappear. renaming when in thumbnail view mode is also impossible. any ideas on how to fix this? thanks

Answer:thumbnails no longer show their names in xp?

Press & hold down the Shift key BEFORE you enter any folder with Thumbnail view. It should be back to normal. G

Is there is a way to do this.
Before when I was on Windows XP,I was using a program called VisualTaskTips which had an option to display a preview of the window like here in Win7 and I had an option to choose how fast to see the preview once I point over the taskbar button(for the window).
The preview was set to be displayed instantly(it really was instantly)and when I move the mouse to another button in the taskbar,I had a preview of the next window instantly.

Currently on Win7 there is a delay before showing the window(I fix that with some guide from here...don't remember the link),delay before showing the next window when I move the mouse and kinda long delay before closing the preview window.

Answer:Show taskbar thumbnails as fast as possible?

I have Windows 2000 pro. I use Vueprint pro as my default viewer for pictures. I have had this same setup on my previous computer and believe there my be a setting or something wrong because none of my thumbnails will preview as before when you are viewing a folder as thumbnails.
My other 2000 computers do not have this problem. only my new toshiba laptop is the oddball.

Also, the pictures no longer display to the left when I have the folder set as a webpage to preveiw in the left column.

Any Ideas? I have already uninstalled vueprint and have change associations several times to imaging or microsoft photo. None of these have helped. I prefer to use vueprint and am not really sure this is due to a program since it affects all folder previewing.

Thumbnail icons for any picture and video file won't appear at first until I change what to view them as, and when I do, the icons are blurry. It also won't let me use my personal image files to be set as my desktop wallpaper. Had this problem for a while, since I had to adjust my registry to fix a sound problem.

Answer:Thumbnails won't show and desktop background won't appear

Try this it might fix the Thumbnail problem.Go to Start-> Control Panel -> Folder OptionsUnder the General tab make sure the "Show preview and filters" is checked.Under the View tab make sure the "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is unchecked and the "Display file icon on thumbnails" is checked.Check out the link below for fixing the desktop background.http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/107383-d...ent-change.html
