Is there a way to save patterns on the computer so that the photo of the pattern shows? I have a lot of pdf's and have to open them all to see the patterns. Thanks for your help..

When you go to save the pattern, highlight the picture also and all will be saved.

It depends on the computer & operating system, but in Windows, I've always opened up the file directory, then had to go to the menu to edit the "file view" and attributes. Haven't done it in so long, so I'm sorry I don't remember specific info.

I think the question is about how the files all appear when you look in your listing of files in the directory. I could be misinterpreting, though.

With picture files, I set them to view icon, but can't remember how PDFs worked.

OMG! I just found out how to do it!

I just asked a question here on how to change your PDF file to show the first page of the pattern so you don't have to open all the patterns to see what they are.
Well....I just discovered how to do it and thought I would share my discovery!
Open a PDF file, click on "edit", then go to "preferences"
Then click on the box that says "enable PDF thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer" and then click "okay". Voila..it works!

Great info and so much faster. I'm sure there are those who already knew this, but I wasn't one of them.

Thanks for the info. I know I set mine up from the control panel, but could not tell you now how I did it!

The "enable thumb nails previews..." etc is nowhere to be found in any of "my" PDF Preference sections that I have and I literally clicked on everything that was clickable!! Of course I have that crummy platform that I detest called Windows 10 that may have made its own adjustments (just to make my life miserable as possible) as it so OFTEN does which interferes with everything I try to do on my computer.

I have Windows 10 too and it still works...
