    I have this problem. Now I have WMP to play music. I had always shown in your album name, song title, etc. Now this is not: Imageshack - 87089873.jpg

    The file properties also Imageshack - 12763020.jpg

    Recently, I have a new anti-virus - Norton. In the properties file is a backup forum: Imageshack - 80495908.jpg

    How do I restore it to its previous state?

    I would add that just before the album and all the others were tagged. So I do not know why now it suddenly disappeared.

    I'm not sure why the tags have gone, but correcting the album picture view is simple enough, jusy goto the view options icon at top right and click the drop arrow and select the view as large icons, it also may be due to thumbnails being cleaned for the cache at some point if they have to index them again.

    One of the top two... both will work fine, just down to size of icons you prefer

    you simply need to select one of the top 2 options on view, small view reverts to the basic folder icon.... also you may want to check that thumbnail mode is enabled just to be sure the feature is enabled.

    Hmm I'm not sure why it isn't working,

    try this I spotted on MS forums....You may have accidentally enabled it

    "What you're going to want to do is open up the Windows Explorer , once that is open click on the down arrow next to Organize, which is located under the Back and Forward navigation buttons. A drop down menu will pop up, select Folder and search options, once that is up, under the View tab, you want to uncheck the first option which reads "Always show icons, never thumbnails"

    Can you send me reg file with default options of folders in Windows 7? I don't have a point restore, so I don't know why I can't display name of album, etc.

    Folder options -> View -> Restore defaults, then reboot. If still no luck, try rebuilding the icon cache:

    1. Task manager -> Processes -> End process 'explorer.exe'
    2. Task manager -> File menu -> New task, type cmd.exe
    3. In the Command Prompt window, type the commands one by one and press ENTER after each:

    CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
    DEL IconCache.db /a
    EXIT


    4. Task manager -> File menu -> New task, type explorer.exe

    See, this is your screenshot with small icons, you are supposed to enlarge them as Highwayman has illustrated for you:

    [​IMG]

    Make them 'Large' or 'Extra large.'

    Yes, I did it.

    Here is my options:

    Imageshack - fileaa.jpg
    Imageshack - fil2.jpg
    Imageshack - file3a.jpg

    And as you can see, it's still the same.
