As I have seen from other people in various areas of the internet. When I look at png images in my One Drive folders (and file explorer)they only show as black squares. Several people have given me various things to try but to no avail. It is not just my computer because I have tried the same thing on many windows machines and the same thing. If I look at the same files in a 3rd party file explorer type product on the same PC you can see the images.
I note that people have been saying this has been happening for years but I have only seen it for about a year. I have to use the 3rd party explorer or I can't do my digital art very well.
Can you please advise how I can flip the backgrounds back to white so I can see the images in explorer and One Drive.
The things I have tried are:
Press Windows key + R Type the following then hit Enter: %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset Press Windows key + R again Type the following then hit Enter: %localappdata%\Microsoft\OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset Restart then try launching and sign into OneDrive.

Click Start > Settings > Storage > Free up space now Wait while files are scanned Check Thumbnails Click Remove files Restart then check if your thumbnails are restored for thumbnail files. In the folder containing your thumbnail files, click the View tab Click Large icons in the Layout tab Also try using your scroll wheel to increase the size.
