Time to Clip those thumbnails!

So I have seen some issues with thumbnails in 1809 Enterprise edition.

When I am aggravated with them I clip them. it’s just good hygiene. lol

Thumnail needs clipping.jpg

so here is a telltale script that does just that.

<#
Thumbnail Issue
-kill explorer tasks
-Remove Thumbnail databases
-restart explorer

#>


#-kill explorer tasks
write-host "stopping the Explorer Process."
Stop-Process -Name explorer -Force

#-Remove Thumbnail databases

Write-Host "These files need to be removed to ensure that they are not Corrupted:" -ForegroundColor Yellow
Get-ChildItem -Path "$env:LOCALAPPDATA\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\" thumbcache_* | select -ExpandProperty fullname -OutVariable THUMBS

remove-item $THUMBS -Force  -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -ErrorVariable ThumbErrors

new-item c:\ -name Logs -ItemType Directory -ErrorAction Stop; $THUMBS| Export-Csv THumbDBErrorLog.csv -NoTypeInformation 
 

That is how you clip those unsightly thumbnails….
