Hi, I have disabled thumbnails in file explorer through the option "always show icons, never show thumbnails" because I don't want ALL the thumbnails etc. I have then enabled the preview pane in file explorer so that I can preview the images I click on, but instead it only shows the image file icon, which is perfectly useless.

Is this normal behaviour? Is it possible to enable image previews in the preview pane without enabling back thumbnails?

Thanks to anyone who will try ti help :)

The Preview pane may not work properly until selecting one of the icon sizes rather than Details or List.

Visualization was set to Content. The preview pane shows a generic icon even when one of the icon sizes is set anyway

So there is really no way to make the preview pane work?

Have you even read what I wrote? You have thumbnails enabled, of course it works.
