    { SOLVED } Can I get pictures on the preview pane?

    I am sure at one time I could see the picture in both the navigation pane and the preview pane of windows explorer. Now all I get with jpgs, pngs etc is an icon with a pair of blue mountains on a blue background with a moon in the sky? Is there any way of getting the pictures back?

    can the information on a local url be forwarded to port 80?

    my wallpaper has disappeared?

    Have you noticed it returns just as soon as you get on the bus to leave and then you find the next appointment is not for another two weeks. I hope this analogy is not going to bleed over into my wallpaper problem.

    I have managed to get the drive to show up as a second drive on another computer and can get at most of the files. I can do a search and find directories called 'pictures' and 'my pictures' in quite a few directories, some of them are refusing to let me into the directory. If I go back a...

    How do I turn notifications on?

    If you mean this one in the general page of the gmail settings. Yes, this is the page I was describing in my first thread. If I click on the "learn more" it takes me to a page that tells me to click on the round button to change it to "on" which it already is.

    How do I turn notifications on?

    Thank you for the response. I have gone to the page and mail.google.com/mail is in my allowed list but there is no arrow to the right of it like the others in the list that allows me to go to permissions? Hovering over the jigsaw piece brings up "this action is enforced be an extension" though...
