    CR2 thumbnail preview nightmare

    Hello Community

    My question is this...... I am sure im not the first, i have looked around in a few forums regarding this and the
    solutions are focussed on not to show the preview, but i would like the preview and not the icon.

    My 8.1 desktop pc
    does not display CR2 thumbnail preview in windows explorer - i want windows explorer to show the preview

    My 8.1 laptop
    does display the CR2 thumbnail preview in windows explorer - i am happy that windows explorer is showing the preview

    Advanced settings, default program settings are exactly the same on both desktop and laptop

    Program i use Photoshop

    Please can someone help me out with this problem

    thanking you in advance
    frustrated from south africa
