File Association complete - no picture showing


Recommended Posts

I love Paintdotnet and have recommended it so many times.

I just got my Windows 7 it is 64 bit and happy until I cannot see my photos on the icons. It is associated to .jpg as usual. Works to open in paintdotnet, but the icon does not show what is inside the file.

I really need to see the icon pict of the photo.

Can anyone help? I did turn off my UserAccount and completed the association. .

Pat

Thanks to all who help the needy - - - :roll:

Try changing the View to "Medium Icons" in your file explorer.

Note: this is a Windows setting and is not related to paint.net.

I could not find anything like "file explorer" anywhere. I looked in Windows.

Since I am unfamiliar with windows 7, that is my problem. I am excited to get this fixed when someone can tell me about file explorer.

Thank you so much, Pat

Is it all image files? Or just some files?

It is all image files (non-video). I am so stumped and need to be defragged mentally.

I really did not think this would be difficult to fix but it is.

I did notice that when I right click on some of the files, they are still associated with Windows Photo Viewer. When I try to change that association, I get a "Winodws Shell Common DLL has stopped working." (I just saw this a few minutes ago.)

The association is correct in the Control Panel.

You need to take your questions to a Windows support forum.
