I can't see my file names in Thumbnails view in My Documents folder, although I can see the thumbnail and the name in other folders.

I know I can just switch to Tiles and Icons (etc.) view, but I like to see my pictures before I open them, since I can't remember the names for them. I don't mind not seeing the names for my pictures, but it can be very frustrating to find a folder that I'm looking for in the same view (Thumbnails) without a name showing underneath, because they all look the same.
I have to put my mouse over them or switch to other views every time I want to open a particular folder in My Documents.

I don't know when or how they disappeared, but can somebody help me fix this?

To fix the Filename problem :

Go to "My documents" click on View and select List then go back to View
then hold down the Shift Key and click on Thumbnails.

Thanks also medab1 :thumbsup:

Got the same problem when I do a search of files. It just stop displaying the filename in thumbnail mode, ok in the other modes. Use the procedure as described. Fixes the problem.

What cause the problem originally?
