NEVER MIND PLEASE DISREGARD I HAVE GOTTEN IT BACK TO SEEING PREVIEWS AGAIN - NOT SURE HOW IT GOT CHANGED BUT ANYWAY - *FIXED* wish all of life would straighten out that fast.   But it probably would not have had I not posted here - I am a strong believer in Murphy's Law and similar unspoken  "Rules of Engagement"




In Settings you Must Choose between Thumbnail or Icon - I don't know which is which - all I know is that I have always had my settings to show a preview of the picture - for some reason - and I don't know if this has anything to do with it - I just updated my Firefox and coincidentally enough all I get with my photos is a symbol instead of being able to see what the picture is of.


I have tried everything I can think of in Windows 8.1 to change that but am having no luck which means I have to remember what I named the photo to find it. :nono:


Can somebody tell me how to get my a preview instead of a little symbol for my photos please?




I always have my settings so that I see an actual preview of the picture instead of just a symbol.  :dance:
