have you tried clicking the ICON that changes the VIEW in Windows Explorer?

You can toggle between different views:
icon, detailed, thumbnail (different sizes), list

You can also try this in Windows Explorer:
Click on Tools
Click on Folder Options
Click on the View tab
Under Files and Folders check to see if the box beside "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is checked. If it is, remove the check and see if that solves the problem.

Try Choosing a default program by
right clicking the picture file then select "open with", then double click the Windows Picture viewer thing.
(Make sure to put a check on select as a default program thingy)

It usually happens if you install programs that changes the default programs of your photo files like Nero Essentials.

Go to Organize/folder options/view. You will find the setting there.

It worked! Thank you smart people.

On mine it was 'Organize' then 'Folder & Search Options', 'View' then the glorious 'Show Icons, Never Thumbnails'. Unchecked baby! Woooo!
