Enable previews for ETP server

Post by Simoz_287 » Wed Mar 17, 2021 9:10 am

Hi, I am a photographer and I do archive most of my pictures on my NAS (old windows machine). It would be extremely useful to be able to see the previews also when I connect to it with my workstation instead of seeing just the icons. Now if I have to do this I have to remote into the machine or to index the shared folder, however this last option takes ages and it needs to be redone every windows reboot.

To show the preview pane in Everything:
  • In Everything, from the View menu, check Preview.
To show large thumbnails in Everything:
  • In Everything, from the View menu, check Large thumbnails.

Thank for your quick reply, I should have wrote it, I want to see the thumbnail preview, not to use the preview pane. The preview pane works, the thumnails keep showing only the icon

What is the extension of the pictures you are trying to show as thumbnails?

Please try the x64 version of Everything.

Please make sure Everything is installed correctly:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Check Everything Service. (Please make sure this is tick-checked and not square-checked)
  • Click OK.
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
  • Restart Everything.
Does the issue persist?
