Also check Windows explorer > Folder options > "View" tab, make sure "Always show icons, never thumbnails" not checked

Yeah I did check to make sure it wasn't checked and it made no difference. So I'm currently doing a clean reinstalled of Windows 8 so hopefully it will fix the issue, fingers crossed.

If you haven't gone ahead with the reinstall yet you might want to check out this first. Maybe this setting is not where it needs to be.

Ok so I did a clean reinstall of Windows 8, removed the bloatware and did all the available windows updates. Then reinstalled MM 4.1 untagged my all previous artwork and retagged it and it's made no difference. Also tried the 2 links that pushpull kindly replied with and no luck there. Going to upgrade to 8.1 and see if that fixes my issue.

Glad to hear you got things back in order. Are going to use Classicshell again? I am still at Win7 but started to use Classicshell because of the annoyances with Explorer. Anyways, glad to help. Wish we could have gotten you squared around without the whole reinstall rigamarole.

Yeah I reinstalled Classicshell as the the new start button for windows 8.1 sucks big time also like the fact I can customize it to the way I want. I think the actual problem was a bug with the original version of windows 8 as you could see photo thumbnails not mp3 ones, believed they fix it in the 8.1 update.
