PDF Thumbnail Previews Gone???

PDF Thumbnail Previews Gone???

I have finally upgraded from Windows 7 32bit to 64bit. No - so far I've not noticed any real positive difference. As for the negatives...I can't preview pdf documents in my folders! Supposedly the issue is on Adobe's side and the good news is that there's a fix out there that works perfectly! But first - let me tell you WHY the previews are so handy for me! I keep all my customer and vendor data in folders on my PC. All my hand written notes, scanned documents, quotes - EVERYTHING - gets saved as a pdf. The ability to open a folder and visually search for what I am looking for is a big help. I just can't remember what's in a document by what I named it all the time! I have a large-ish monitor, so I can afford to view all my folders and items as "Extra Large Icons." Not being able to preview my docs was a huge blow!

 

So for the fix!

 

Thanks to my good friend Leo Davidson - he has put a lot of time and energy into a simple downloadable fix - OR if you like editing your own windows registry - he gives plenty of instructions. Me - I just downloaded the fix and ran it!

 

Here's the link to his site - comments?
