File explorer not showing preview pane for PDFs

Copper Contributor

I have the latest updated version of Windows11 available, my problem is that for a couple of days my file explorer doesn't show anymore the preview pane for any pdf file, stored on the device or in the OneDrive folder, but still works with images, .py and .html files, video files like .mp4, all .txt files.

I've noticed that with Excel, Word and PowerPoint files the pane is just empty but maybe because of the size of the document.

With PDFs it just displays "Preview not available".

Can someone give me some advice on how to solve this issue?

Is it a problem that other users are having?
