Just wondering if someone can help me. As I've stated in the subject of this conversation, I am unable to see a preview of Excel documents in File Explorer; this is quite important as I have numerous simiarly-named Excel worksheets on my new laptop and need to be able to identify files quickly. I've tried registry fixes, KB registry fixes, uninstalling and reinstalling (and repairing) Office 2016, but to no avail. I think I've more or less tried every suggestion I've found on internet, but nothing seems to work. There is no problem at all with other Office and PDF files. And I can preview Excel files in Outlook.
