Update Thumbnails

Post by Jeijwnfhow »

XnViewMP keeps shows old images I deleted as thumbnails for my folders. How do I get rid of them, and replace them with my current images?

"View" menu...

But I think you were talking about 1 or 4 thumbnails used to illustrate the folders ;
so you should select the folder on the right side of the browser and use "Rebuild Thumbnails" , also located in View menu...
