Preview window doesn't renew

Post by MoetheSleaze » Thu Oct 24, 2019 5:19 pm

I use Everything for years now - and never experienced any problem. Now that I've updated my system to Windows 10 and my Everything to version 1.4.1.935 (x64) I suddenly realize that the preview window on the right side doesn't renew its content when I choose different mp3 files to play. The music changes but the album cover stays the same all the time. I know, it's not a big deal. But then again - it was so much nicer before. I'm grateful for any help.

Everything has "outsourced" the previewing of mp3 files to Windows: it uses the same mechanism as the one in File Explorer.

How does the preview in File Explorer behave? (press Alt-P to toggle the preview pane)

Thanks for the information. As far as I can see the preview in File Explorer works just fine: Alt-P immediately shows me the right album cover.

That is strange ...

Are you running Everything with a different useraccount? (for example: administrtaor?)

Please check if you have Run as administrator disabled and Everything Service enabled.
Both can be found under Menu:Tools > Options > General

Thanks for your answer - but Run as administrator was disabled, and Everything Service was enabled.
In the meantime I found out that alt-p removes the wrong album cover in Everything and another pressing of alt-p shows me the correct cover in the end. A bit inconvenient - but better than nothing.

For me this works fine.
If preview is on moving the cursor to the next file updates the album cover.
Everything Version 1.4.1.955 (x64)

Are you sure it's version 1.4.1.955 (x64)? I thought the newest version was 1.4.1.935.
