Hi, I have a problem with the PS startup screen. I don't see thumbnails of recently edited files. I reseted PS settings, reinstalled PS and unfortunately can't turn on preview.

Anyone have any idea?

Yes, the files appear under recent files (File > Open Recent). I reset and even deleted manually. The system is Windows 10. But ... it turned out the problem is in version 22.3 as I went back to 22.2 everything is ok. Thumbnails are visible.

Do you see files if you use File > Open Recent ?

You say you reset settings.  Does that mean that you reset Preferences?  If yes, I'm so far at a loss as to what the problem might be.

 

What operating system are you using?

The "Recent Files" setting is at the bottom of "File Handling" in the Preferences.

Blimey Gene.  100 files?  Do you display them as list or grid, and how do you sort them?  After seeing your screen shot I have now realised there is a search field, which would make that many files managable.  So I started off thinking your were stark raving, and now I am going to follow your lead.  It's a funny old world.image.png

I used to use it as a list. I needed to go beyond the default 20 if I wanted to recall something I did earlier. Strange thing about the Recents setting. I noticed if I went to 100, the last 100 documents were already there.

Hah!  That worked for me as well Gene.  I wish the Beta version had that information along with custom workspaces, toolbars shortcuts etc.  Have you got a magic trick for that as well? 😉
