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\Curr entVersion\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"
