Configuring Windows 8 File Explorer Folder Options

Movie Premier for Windows 8 takes advantage of the Windows 8 image thumbnail database to improve system performance. By default, most systems are already configured to allow Windows 8 to store thumbnails of your images; however, we recommend confirming the following setting.

If you see the default windows image icon instead of your movie poster images on every screen except the movie details screen, changing the following setting and restarting Movie Premier for Windows 8 should resolve the issue.

  • Navigate to the Windows 8 desktop
  • Launch a File Explorer
  • Click on the View tab at the top of the window
  • Click Options button
  • Select the View tab
  • Be sure the option labeled “Always display icons, never thumbnails” is not checked in the Advanced settings list
    • Uncheck the option if it is currently enabled
    • Click Apply
    • Click OK
