Hi, I just got a brand new desktop computer with windows 11 on it. My Photoshop file thumbnails do not show an image just the PS/PSD icon. Can I fix this so I can see the image? Very annoying. Thanks.

There are stand alone solutions. I just want to see my thumbnails in my windows folders. Easier for transferring images to different folders. I use Breezebrowser to sort through my images and edit out ones I want. But when I open up Photoshop for instance unless I've made a jpeg copy I can't see the Photoshop image., just the icon. Annoying.

Hi

Windows doesn't show PSD thumbnail images by default, you have a couple of choices, install Adobe Bridge

or install Pictus, make sure to select PSD during the installation

Thanks Ged

I guess the Windows <-> war is alive and running.  Such a simple concept.
Been looking for something like this for years, as Bridge is a nice too, but runs slower than the snails in the yard.

I have the opposite problem. I ONLY see thumbnails for PSD files which is so confusing. No one can figure out how to revert.

Did you recently start using OneDrive per chance? We found out that this is what happens when you put all your stuff on OneDrive. 😞
