WHAT HAPPENED?

Recommended Posts

Up until yesterday when I would open an existing MC file whenever I would mouse over a filename in the recent documents list I would get a nice icon image of the part within. Now it does not work. Is this some sort of customization setting?

In File Explorer, click on View/Preview Pane. And then drag the preview pane to your desired size.

It's just a windows thing that sometimes resets.

No. This is within mastercam. Not the windows file explorer. Here is what I do..

When MC is open click on file

click open

mouse over recent files list. It used to show an image.

Look in your config, under Files. Is this box checked?

What Windows operating system are you using?  I had similar issues with both Mastercam, and Solidworks happen to my old computer running Windows 7 Pro.

OS is win10. I just updated to MC2020 update 2 last week and noticed the issue 2 days afterward.
