Thumbnails not showing on network drive but on local drives. (Win 10 Pro)

Posted on


I just finished my new rig and installed Windows 10 Professional. I also have the latest version and all the updates.

When I go to my NAS, the explorer doesn’t show thumbnails anymore (gif, png, jpg, etc). On my local drives, they are showing.

Here is what I tried already:

  • Checked the settings and all is set to show thumbs and not icons.
  • Deleted the thumbnails cache multiple times.
  • Tried sagethumbs and icaros
  • Created these registry entries:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorerDisableThumbnails Value 0
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorerDisableThumbnailsOnNetworkFolders Value 0
  • Changed the folder content to pictures, but also no luck.

None of these worked. Does anyone have another idea?


Ok I fixed the issue. You have to add this reg key as well.

ComputerHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorerDisableThumbnailsOnNetworkFolders 0
