While folder opened,

  1. Press Alt then T to open the tools menu
  2. In the menu, you will have a menu item named as "Folder Options", click it, it will open folder options windows
  3. Head to the 'View' tab in this window located at the top below the title bar
  4. Now, in the Advance Settings box, you will find "Show hidden folders, files, and drives."
  5. Once you check the box for this and apply the change, you should see a new file called "Thumbs.db" along with pictures, Delete "Thumbs.db" file
  6. Set file explorer view to thumbnail mode
  7. It will start regenerating thumbnails one by one, wait for Windows to recompile the thumbnail database and you will see thumbnails of pictures.

I hope this helps.
