Has anyone heard if the folder content icons are coming back to windows 11? I can't switch over until they do or if they do. Those really help me sort through and find the folder with the right images I am looking for a business.

I saw someone on Reddit say that they were working on it .. I asked where they heard that from and no reply. I haven't been able to find anything about it.

Lots of complaints on the feedback hub about it, but no official word. It doesn't look nearly as good but there is a third party app that is supposed to be similar though I have not personally used it. You might want to check it out to see if it might work for you.
download it here Download Windows Thumbnail Generator - MajorGeeks. You might also want to look at this post for more info.

There's not a lot of info on the app but this link gives a screenshot of how it makes your folders appear.

Thanks for the reply. I saw that thread about 15 minutes after I posted that and they mentioned the feedback hub as well. Where is this feedback hub is that something that everyone can access? I cant find it anywhere

I forgot to say it before but welcome to the forum RMark. The feedback hub is an app within Windows 11 where users can go to report problems and concerns about Windows 11. There is a similar app in Windows 10. So, no unless you are running Windows 11 you do not have access to the Windows 11 feedback hub.

Search or all apps and there she be. Within the hub click on feedback in left pane and you can search for similar complaints to yours. You can upvote another users issue or enter your own. In my opinion upvoting is best since it shows numbers of how many people have the same complaint. Many times,Microsoft reps acknowledge complaints within the hub and give you a status if they plan to fix the issue. The only problem with the feedback hub is people post their own complaint rather than upvoting another user's feedback that is the same complaint. IMO a problem would get more attention if folks would upvote.
