    When setting the Windows explorer view tot thumbnails, there are no
    thumbnails generated for PSD-files.

    I know it's possible to add this function but can't remember or find how to
    do.

    It must be possible because before it was OK (before format of my drive).

    Can someone help me please?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have installed PSCS, you are apparently out of luck. This is no
    longer supported.

    Oh yes ... it works fine ;-)
    I found the solution ...

    Three simple things to do ...

    1) Photoshop CS => Edit => Preferences => File Handling => Maximize PSD File
    Compatibility => Always (this will generate the composite image for layered
    Photoshop files)

    2) Copy psicon.dll from a previous version of Photoshop to C:\Program
    Files\Common Files\Adobe\Shell

    3) Create a reg-file and import this into the registry and reboot

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SharedDLLs]
    "C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Adobe\\Shell\\psicon.dll"=dword:00000001

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.psd\ShellEx]

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.psd\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
    @="{0B6DC6EE-C4FD-11d1-819A-00C04FB69B4D}"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0B6DC6EE-C4FD-11d1-819A-00C04FB69B4D}]
    @="Photoshop Icon Handler"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0B6DC6EE-C4FD-11d1-819A-00C04FB69B4D}\InProcServer
    32]
    @="C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Adobe\\Shell\\psicon.dll"
    "ThreadingModel"="Apartment"
