    Try selecting the hourglass thumbnails (Shift+Click) or (Ctrl+click) then click on the top menu

     

    Edit >> Update Thumbnail For Selected Items

     

    If that doesn’t work close Elements and delete the thumbnail cache which sometime becomes corrupted.

     

    Go to My Computer and click on local disk C and follow the path to the My Catalog folder.

     

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Catalog Folders\My Calalog

     

    Inside the My Catalog folder (or whatever name you gave your catalog) you should find a CACHE file:

     

    thumb.5.cache

     

    Highlight that file and delete it.

     

    After deleting that file restart the elements Organizer and wait whilst it regenerates thumbnails.

     

    N.B if you can’t see Application Data when you click on the All users folder, it may be a hidden system file. In that case click on Tools >> Folder Options and then select the View Tab. Click the radio button to show hidden files and folders, then click Apply and then OK.
