But when I clicked on "Go To Folder" from the TP Viewer, this is where it took me in the TP folder tree:
C:\Users\yecal\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\37IYBT05

Are you positive that this file was stored on your phone's internal memory and not in the cloud?

I know that many devices only work with native Windows Explorer but not with applications that use Explorer functionality. So, that might be the cause and in that case, I don't think there's anything that can be done about it.

Things that I would still try:

- Switch the Pixel to a different file transfer mode (as explained here: https://tunecomp.net/google-pixel-windows-10-this-folder-is-empty/ ) and don't launch TP until after you've made that switch.

- See if there are Pixel drivers for Windows 10 that enable access from more applications than Explorer only.

I'm having the same problem with a Google Pixel XL phone. Windows Explorer shows the phone fine. I could not drag & drop a JPG image onto TP. I manually set TP as the default App for JPG files through the Windows Explorer JPG image properties dialog. (Windows 10 Settings would not even show TP as an App to permit this change).

While I still couldn't drag & drop onto TP, I could double click a JPG image on my phone using Windows Explorer to open it in the TP Viewer.

But when I clicked on "Go To Folder" from the TP Viewer, this is where it took me in the TP folder tree:
C:\Users\yecal\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\37IYBT05

TP still did not see or register my phone properly.

I thought it would be in Options | Preferences | Confirmations, but I do not see a setting there specific to those lossless operations that you've been using..

If you can't find it either, exit TP, open your Thumbs8.ini in Notepad and look for a line "JpegAutoTrim=1". Change the 1 into a 0 and that should solve it.

btw, note that you can also use Transform | Turn and Mirror to rotate your image. It sounds like you were using File | Jpeg | Turn. The latter is a so-called lossless operation, meaning that the jpg file won't be recompressed when you use this, so its image quality won't be affected. However, this only works if the height and width of the image are divisible by 8 - any remainder will be cut off. When you use the regular Turn and Mirror commands instead, nothing will be cut off but your image will of course be re-compressed when you save it.

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / How to undo a "Don't Show Me This Again"
« Last post by djeber on 2019-09-05 13:14:10 »
Hello. While using ThumbsPlus 8 to rotate a picture 90 degrees, I got a pop-up warning about how it could change the picture, blah, blah, whatever. Without thinking, I clicked Don't Show Me This Again and then clicked skip. Now, as a result, it won't let me rotate pictures 90 degrees. When I try, I get a message that says "File skipped because edges would be lost during lossless rotation." Is there anyone who can tell me how I can undo this mistake? Thanks.

I've crossed the 2GB threshold on my tpdb8 database, so I've created a new sqlite tpbd8s database.
Can I import the thumbnail and data from my old database into the new database?

I can't help, except by pointing you to this previous discussion that may offer some clues:

http://forum.thumbsplus.com/forum/index.php?topic=5521.0

(note that in that case, the TP user was still using TP7 and hoped to upgrade to TP10 + SQLite3 database)

no sadly the drag and drop doesn't work... maybe I should submit it as a suggestion.
thanks for the thought.

Yes, too bad! Some things seem to work only in the native Explorer.

Are you positive though, that 'MaciPhone' does not appear under (well, within) 'This PC'? Have you tried connecting the iPhone first and then launching TP? Or, press Ctrl-F5 to refresh the tree?

I have one final potential trick upon my sleeve..:

- Close TP
- Open the iPhone's DCIM folder in an Explorer window.
- Drag and drop a JPG file from that folder onto the ThumbsPlus icon on your desktop
- This should launch ThumbsPlus and make it display that JPG image in its viewer/editor
- From the viewer's menu, pick: File | Go To Folder
- This should cause the main TP program (the thuimbnail listing) to display the DCIM folder. So, go to the main program and choose Tree | Add to Favorites in the menu. Give your new favorite folder a description like 'iPhone' and save it.
- IF this worked, from now on, you can simply use the 'Go To' function to jump to your iPhone. There's a big yellow star icon up above the tree panel that you can press, or you can use Tree | Go To in the menu.

Thanks Daan
the phone appears in the explorer window.
I've tried ticking boxes in the disks and folders preferences but nothing seems to pull it up in the T+ tree, so maybe not an option.
The path name in windows is This PC\MaciPhone\Internal Storage\DCIM  but pasting that into the pathname box in T+ doesn't work...
A pity, it would be useful.
cheers
