psd thumbnails problem

Hi,
I had to reinstall Photoshop lately and can't remember how to have the content of psd thumbnails showing under Photoshop (see picture) without clicking on each picture individually. They show OK in Windows Explorer.
Thanks for your help,
Sylvia

Re: psd thumbnails problem

Look for psicon.dll in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Shell\ If it is not there ... download it from HERE and place it there

Re: psd thumbnails problem

Thanks for the answer, OlBaldy. I just tried it but it still didn't work, maybe because I use a portable version of CS5?
Thanks again,
Sylvia

Re: psd thumbnails problem

Chillin, I think Sylvia has the reverse problem. She states that PSD thumbnails show up in Windows but not in PS when she does a File>Open.
Sylvia, try the following: Open any folder which contains a PSD file. From the folder window menu, choose Tools>Folder Options. Click on the File Type tab, scroll down to click on PSD; Click the Change button and associate that file type with your current version of PS. I seem to recall that associating a file type with a specific application also associates the thumbnail view with that application. I may be wrong but it might be worth a try.
Regards, Murray

Re: psd thumbnails problem

If it's any consolation, they don't show for me either. Adobe dropped official support of thumbnails in Windows a couple of versions ago. Any thumbnail viewing now will be via hacks and other unsupported techniques. This is one reason Adobe implemented minibridge in CS5.

I wonder why they would do that!!! It doesn't seem to make much sense to me, really...

Re: psd thumbnails problem

Sylvia, my rusty memory kicked in (at least partly). I recall way back at PS7, Adobe and Microsoft got into some disagreement and windows no longer supported PSD thumnail. At the time, there was a recommendation on the Adobe Forum to download and replace one of a new PS dll with the one from the previous PS release. I will see if I can find any old documentation. I don't recall what I did but under Windows XP, I have continued to have the ability to view the PSD thumbnails in Windows and with PS File>Open from PS7 thru CS5.
However, in the meantime you might want to check out Mystic Thumbs at the link below. The program allows you to see PSD and other thumbnails in Win 7 and Vista and I think it costs $15 and you could get a free trial version.
