preview of ".gif",".jepg" &".jpg" files

By S.K.Ansari ·
I am using Windows 98. Before, whenever I select(highlight) any of the above mentioned files, the left hand section of the window used to display the file details and generate a preview. For some reason it has stopped generating the preview but filedetails are still shown in the left section. Please advise solution! apart from re-loading/installing windows.

Open Windows Explorer. From the View menu, select "As Web Page".
If that is already set, then there is a problem in the Registry. Microsoft has an article that covers it at http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=KB;EN-US;Q192573
The short answer is you will need to use REGEDIT (make a backup first!) and modify the following key:

Registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ file type \ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}

Value: (Default)="{7376D660-C583-11d0-A3A5-00C04FD706EC}"

It's caused by some 3rd-party viewers.

Good Luck

It did not help me the way it is qoted, but it gives me a clue to resolve the problem. Actually I have to go to the keys for ".gif', ".jpeg" & ".jpg" individually, have to add key "ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}", [ you have suggested]. and also have to insert Value: Default)= "{7376D660-C583-11d0-A3A5-00C04FD706EC}".
After doing all the above keys, image preview works fine.
Best Regards,

Maybe you can try this simple way, and if it does not work; use the dangerous way: changing the Registry is very very dangerous, except you know it by heart.

start-->settings-->folder options-->general / preview.
Change the options according to your needs.
