 Clear Thumbnail Cache

Clears the thumbnail and/or the icon cache so all thumbnails will be recreated if their file type and extensions are enabled.


This can be useful if you have disabled any file formats or extensions and want those files to be restored to icons instead of thumbnails for example.


MysticThumbs launches the "Disk Cleanup" Windows utility asynchronously to perform the thumbnail cache clear to perform the

 Registered license installed with full support and product maintenance.

 License maintenance expired or Evaluation period 14 days.

 Current version is beyond maintenance date. Install a version built before license support expired, or renew your license to extend your product maintenance another year and enjoy new features, optimisations and bug fixes.



 Undo Unsaved

When there are unsaved changes you can undo back to the last applied state. This allows you to make many changes at once and discard them if you made a mistake.

 Reset to Default

Hold the Control (Ctrl) () key whilst the control panel has focus and the reset icon will appear in place of the undo icon.

Pressing with the Ctrl key held will load the default state for all file format settings. Apply is still required to save the change back to the system.

 Note that reset to default only affects non-global settings, in other words file format and extension settings and enables.




All currently unsaved changes are saved. Changes saved and applied in the control panel take effect to thumbnails generated after applying the changes only, not to existing thumbnails that are in the Explorer cache.

 Apply saves current changes but does not exit. Use Apply to manifest changes in an atomic fashion, such as making changes to a number of options of one file format at a time.


 Hold the Control (Ctrl) () key and the apply icon changes to an apply to open windows icon. This applies all changes and also refreshes all open Explorer windows to reflect the changes made.
