Windows Explorer Not Showing Thumbnails after 3DB uninstall

Post by seychellian » Tue Apr 15, 2014 12:15 pm

I am having a problem where after uninstalling 3D Browser Windows Explorer no longer displays my thumbnails, instead showing only icons. I have fiddled with every windows setting under the sun and nothing seems to being them back.

Has anyone else encountered this issue and if so how did you resolve it?

Thanks :)

3DBrowser could add some thumbnail handlers but do this only if you check the option during the setup.
If you select that option, and want to move back to your previous settings you can revert using Edit > Preferences > Windows and Shell Extensions.

You can then disable 3DBrowser thumbnail generation by selecting Explorer Integration > Thumbnail Generation > Do not generate for any extension.

Note that you can also choose to enable thumbnailing only for 3D files, or only for some specific extension.

Note that 3DBrowser does not handle some specific files extension by default such JPEG, BMP... Windows does this very well.
But once you select thumbnailing for 3D formats you'll never go back. It is really useful.
