The capabilities of the Shell can be extended with registry entries and. While this approach to extending the Shell is simple, and adequate for many purposes, it is limited.

Extending the Shell with the registry does not allow you to vary the icon for different files of the same type.

A more powerful and flexible approach to extending the Shell is to implement shell extension handlers.

How to fix issues with Windows image thumbnails

When you click a video file in File Explorer, the Preview pane may not show the image preview nor the mini-player control for the chosen file. In some cases, No preview available message is shown in the Preview pane for selected or all media file types. This enables the thumbnail previews and also activates the Preview handlers that are registered for each file type. There are situations where the Folder Options settings do not make any difference. The ultimate fix is to add the thumbnail hander and the preview handler shell extensions for media files using the registry fix below. After running the fix, image thumbnails, as well as the previews, should work fine for the supported file types, no matter which program you set as the default. Double-click the file to apply the settings to the registry.
