    My picture files used to show the pictures. Somewhere down the line they changed to flower icons. How do I get my pictures back?

    There are various places that something might have changed to bring that about. The simplest to check is as follows:

    Go to your pictures folder.
    Press Alt
    Go to tools
    Click Folder Options
    Click View.
    Make sure that "always show icons, never thumbnails" is unchecked.
    Click OK

    If your problem has been resolved, as the original poster you and only you can click the "mark solved" button at the top of the thread. This will alert others with the same issue that a possible fix can be found here. Likewise it will help to ensure that our volunteers focus on issues which still lack a solution instead of possibly wasting time here.
