Images don’t open when I view

I am unable to easily preview my images in folders. Even if I select View – Large Icons. The icon increases in actual size but all the images remain the same with a default blue landscape.

It is taking me ages to track down an image I want as I am having to select and open each image – I work in Marketing and this is taking me far too long..

Can anyone offer a simple solution – or is it the way some images are saved?

Many thanks for reading!

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to help me out.  Unfortunately, I think I might be using an older version to the one to you Dave.

However, I have found a way to fix it and go back to actually seeing my images rather than the default blue landscapes.

If anyone else is reading this with a similar issue this is what I did:

Window +E to open File Explorer >Organise>Folder&Search Options>View>checked Display File Icon on Thumbnail
