How do I force Bridge to generate all thumbnails/previews when I load up a directory?

This problem seems to come and go, even without changing versions, and it results in a lot of wasted time: I load up a directory of 1000 or so images and I start scrolling through them.  Bridge pauses each time a new batch of images appears on screen.

 

So I scroll to the next batch.  And wait.  Then scroll.  Then wait.  Then scroll.  Then wait.  You get the idea...

 

Sometimes Bridge will generate all thumbnails/previews when I load up a directory but sometimes not.  I can't figure out what causes it to do so.

 

I have Preview Generation set to "Always Generate".  I have Preview Quality set to "Standard".  I have tried "Embedded" and "Standard" preview size and there is no difference in behavior.

 

So how do I force Bridge to generate all thumbnails/previews every time I load up a directory?  I'm happy to wait for it to finish but I can't figure out how to make it process more than a dozen or so images at a time.

 

Thanks

If you purge cache for that folder, Bridge will regenerate previews and thumbs.

This doesn't seem to work on missing previews on .png images.
