Thumbnail Pictures Deleted - How To Restore

Jan 29, 2014

My problem is that all my thumbnails that would normally show as the actual picture in any file or folder including ones saved to the desktop have all been replaced with a windows generic mountain and sun cartoon. The only way I can see what any individual picture file is to physically click on it and open it up in a viewer. This is a royal pain to try to find any individual picture to say the least.

.I get a error message saying restore could not be completed...try choosing a different restore date.........I have tried them all.....same error message

How To Restore Public Pictures Folder

Jun 5, 2013

Within the document libraries there appear to be a number of default folders For Example

My Pictures
Public Pictures

Whilst transferring all my picture files across from my old laptop I seem to have deleted the public pictures folder within my personal library. After a bid of searching around I have found the Public Pictures folder under the "public" area of the C: directory. It appears to only be missing only in my profile account (other profiles are also unaffected).

My question is how do I restore this folder? If I copy and paste the source public pictures folder I appear to be making a complete copy, rather than a shortcut type link to the files.

Accounts :: Deleted USERS Folder - How To Restore

Jul 2, 2014

I'm using Win 8 with Win 7 Interface.

So basically the problem is that the computer is running on win 8 and the folder 'Users' located in C: was copied to disk D: and then deleted from disk C:.


Now when I go to 'start' there are no 'my music' 'my documents' etc, instead of that it shows '<No Text>' and doesn't open up. (Although when I scroll over the "<No Text>" (there are 3 different ones) I can see bars popping up 'Access letters and etc documents', 'View and organize pictures', 'Play music and other audio files'.)

I tried system restore 3 times to 3 different earlier restore points - nothing happened. How to fix this without having to reinstall OS?

Accounts :: Deleted Admin Account In Update - How To Restore

Jun 8, 2014

I only had one account on my Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 x64 computer. Then I messed it up when I changed rights. Now the computer boots up and I can log in but as a user.

Most of the suggestions I read require admin rights which I no longer have. I can't create a new account or edit the built-in admin account but I keep getting the error 5.

So Should I try to boot in safe mode with DOS prompt and hopefully admin rights?

Would a system restore work? I do have recent restore points but will I be able to restore if I am not the administrator?

I am asking all of this because I am not in front of my computer at this moment... I had to leave on a business trip so I will attempt repairs when I get back home.

Worst case scenario will require me to start from scratch, which I am trying to avoid.

Win 8 - Remove Metro Apps And Restore Standard File Associations To Pictures?

Sep 4, 2012

Any way to get rid of Metro appz which come with Win8 directly working with Dism. Also it's possible to restore standard file associations so that pictures open with Image viewer without switching to Metro UI.

Note: c: est contains my offline image.

dism /image:c: est /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingFinance_1.2.0.135_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
dism /image:c: est /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingMaps_1.2.0.136_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe

[Code] .....

To fix associations, save this XML as "AppAssoc.xml":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Association Identifier=".bmp" ProgId="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Bitmap" ApplicationName="Windows Photo Viewer" />
<Association Identifier=".dib" ProgId="PhotoViewer.FileAssoc.Bitmap" ApplicationName="Windows Photo Viewer" />

[Code] .....

And then:

dism /image:c: est /Remove-DefaultAppAssociations
dism /image:c: est /import-DefaultAppAssociations:C:AppAssoc.xml

Setup Installation :: Restore Defaults Deleted Boot Priorities Completely

Dec 28, 2012

I bought a Windows 8 laptop, ASUS Q500A, and reformatted it with Windows 7.

I went into the BIOS and used "Restore Defaults" and now all Boot Option Priorities are deleted.

Each time I boot the laptop, it automatically goes to BIOS (or UEFI).

I tried inserting the Windows 7 disc so I can access Startup Repair or Command Prompt but it freezes before it could get anywhere even when I tried it with an external CD/DVD drive.

I cannot get the laptop to boot to the hard drive or CD drive at all,

how I can reset the boot option priorities so it will be boot to the hard drive again.

It's very inconvenient especially with couple of opened windows.

Taskbar Thumbnail Previews Not Appearing - Tooltip Instead

Apr 30, 2014

Every since I updated my 8.1 to update 1 I have this annoying bug, the taskbar miniatures stop appearing and instead i have this annoying tooltip with whatever program's name I hovered last, that insists in staying above all other windows:

The only way to fix it is rebooting my computer, but it just comes back after a while.

I haven't found any link to any open program, any way I can debug this to find out why this is happening? I'm close to formatting the computer because of this annoyance.

Thumbnail At The Bottom Of Folder Window Missing

Apr 3, 2014

On the other Windows PCs I've used, there has always been a small thumbnail at the bottom of the window showing details of the item/photo selected, but with Window 8, this is missing.

Some details are there, but they are not easy to take in at a glance and I really miss the thumbnail preview. Also, and this is really annoying - the details don't state the size of videos. I'm not going to rundown Windows yet again, as I'm hoping I'm missing something simple.

Is there a way to get this feature back? I've worked hard to make 8 useable, but this little, yet much missed, detail eludes me. Although I'm sure more annoyances will come along .

Windows Explorer Stops Showing Files Or No File Thumbnail

Aug 21, 2013

Annoying error of windows explorer. Windows explorer is getting crashed while opening any folders accidentally, especially folders with large number of files and images. first it appears as windows explorer is unable to load files thumbnails (any kind of files) and appears as white or blank icons regardless the type of file. then when opening my computer in another window , it couldn't load even contents of drivers and hangs as "searching for items".

All this happens suddenly after weeks of normal windows usage. I resolve it by backing up system using Acronis image. but the problem persists. I tried virus scan with no success using AVG. I made thorough scan for C with no result too.

Note that this problem I found with Windows 7 and it forced me to upgrade to Windows 8 then I'm experiencing the same problem now. I don't Understand why.

Note: I think there's no hardware (HDD) error cause I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Windows and it's browsing files perfectly.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Forgets Thumbnail View In Explorer

Dec 24, 2013

My Windows 8.1 64 bit started forgetting the view settings from a folder.So if I go in a folder and I set it to List-View for example,whenever I close that folder and I reopen it the view is set automatically to Details view.And this applies to every folder in my computer except Desktop.It drives me crazy,especially in my pictures folders.

Also with this problem another one came.I can't set a program to open some files,so the file associations for some files is broken. For example i can't set qTorrent to open torrent files.It just won't open them and the files apear as white documents just like I hadn't had a Torrent program installed already.I find it weird that both problems appeared together.

I previously had to reinstall windows on my machine,because of this problems.It worked normal at the begging,but today these problems appeared again.I tried scanning SFC Scan with no result.

Update:I also just discovered that Metro apps are not working anymore...what the heck its wrong with my windows.
