Sep 13, 2013 1:13 PM

I am trying to change the image that is shown when looking at a video file, before opening it, in Windows explorer.  I think its called the thumbnail?

    Just for background information for later, what version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?

     

    What are you seeing now in the video thumbnail in Windows Explorer? Are you seeing some generic representation or the first frame of the video? What is the video audio compressions for this file along with the file extension?

     

    Are you looking for something like

    Let us approach this from a different angle to see if we can define the situation.

     

    If you or whomever has Premiere Elements imports this video into Premiere Elements, does the thumbnail for the video in the project's assets area present with the first frame of the video or, like your Windows Explorer, 35 seconds into the video?

     

    Thanks.
