    I have some pics saved to my C drive. When I try to look at them or post one online, all I see are icons, not the thumbnail pics. It worked fine at first but I had to do a system restore recently & since then I can't see my pics, just the icons, How do I make the thumbnail pics show instead of the icons?

    In File Explorer and the Pictures Folder have you looked on the View Ribbon for Large Icons, Extra Large Icons, Details, etc.?

    Yes. None show the thumbnail pic, only icons.

    My Extra large icons show and when double-clicked open in Windows Photo Viewer. Maybe it's a File Association issue, what program opens your .jpg or .png files when double-clicked?

    The icons show in Photo Viewer but double clicking doesn't change them.

    Double-clicking only opens the program associated with the files, won't change the icon. It would appear the System Restore messed things up.
