A thumbnail is generally located only where the actual .jpg is situated, such as in the Pictures folder. Turning off "thumbnail view" in that folder will show it in a list or something similar. You should be able to double-click on the actual .jpg file and open it using one of the various viewers installed on the computer. On the other hand, if you're referring to a ".lnk/shortcut" to the .jpg file, then you might see a thumbnail view of the picture but it's not actually the true .jpg file. As such, renaming the shortcut doesn't actually get the job done and picture viewers might get lost. And double clicking on the .lnk file might cause issues if the link no longer points to the correct location. Can you create a new shortcut and does it work now?
So, what is the file extension on the "thumbnail" you're referring to? Is it .jpg picture file and does the file reside in a Picture folder,,,,, or is it a .lnk shortcut file and if you RIGHT click on the file and choose "Properties", then the "shortcut" tab, does the true location of the file reside somewhere else?
Where are these "thumbnails" located in the folder structure?
Hope this helps and let us know more.
Hi, I updated to the Windows 10 Creator and now I'm getting a "file not found" message every time I click on a thumbnail of a .jpg I want to open. I can open the .jpg in Photoshop Elements, but I can't open it again if I try to rename it and save it. Does anyone know a fix for this? Thanks in advance.
