    Default Thumbnail images in Explorer

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

    The Windows Explorer preview pane shows only an icon for dwg files, not a thumbnail/preview image. Other file types show previews.
    Anyone else see this?

    I get thumbnails with icon views larger than small.

    It seems to be a Windows problem - it's not previewing jpg or png either.

    There's a setting in Windows 7 to display thumbnails or not.
