    I've recently had problems with which programs are associated with certain image file types. (.GIF, .JPG, .BMP and .TIFF)

    After trying and failing to modify the details in Folder Options>File Types, I ended up deleting all the file types in the list and recreating them from new.

    As a result, things are now more or less back to normal with the exception that when I now click on a file in a folder (set to 'View as Webpage') I no longer get the preview of the image in the left hand panel of the folder like I used to. All the file details (name, file size, type etc) are displayed as normal at the top of the panel but no preview.

    When I click on other file types (eg html files), they display previews as normal. Any ideas what I've missed/done wrong?

    Thanks.
    Steve
