PDF thumbnails not showing in Windows 10 file explorer
When I ran Windows 7, I used to be able to see my PDF files as thumbnail pictures in Windows File Explorer. I recently got a new laptop (Windows 8.1) and upgraded to Windows 10. However, the Reader app only shows an icon, and no thumbnail of my files in
File Explorer. Also, it says no preview is available (although it is available for Word files). I tried installing Adobe DC but that doesn't show thumbnails either, so I uninstalled it and am back to Reader. Any ideas please anyone?

Adobe reader has been working for some time now. The fixed their program to work with windows 10 about a week after i installed windows 10. You may need to update whatever pdf reader you use to the latest release. It will probably work
