Windows Explorer JPG Icons are Greyed

When I look at the thumbnails of my jpgs, they
are grayed and harder to work with. I would like
to make them just a normal small image of the original.
They are not corrupted when I double-click on them,
they launch the image viewer and look fine. I'm using
Windows 7 with automatic updates.

Welcome to the forums!

Try this:

Right click the folder that contains the jpgs and click properties. If the "Hidden" box is checked in the general tab, unckeck it and restart.

If that's not it, tell us and we'll look for another solution.

That's it! Thanks. Thanko you muchio.
