For some reason CorelDraw files (.cdr) do not show thumbnail icons. This makes it inconvenient for users who want to know the content of the file in advance to quickly open the work. To fix that error, do the following:
First, go to Control Panel \ Programs and Features
In this window, pay attention to: Corel Graphics Windows Shell Extension
If there are many of these items, please delete them all, if not, delete them manually by: Go to the directory:
C:\ Progam Files \ Common Files \ Corel \ Shared \ Shell Extension
Please delete all the directory: Shell Extension
corel graphics windows shell extension

Then go to Control Panel \ Programs and Features again
Right-click on Corel Graphics Windows Shell Extension and choose Uninstall
Then you restart your computer.

Next you go to drive C and find: ShellExt (usually it is located in: C:\ Progam Files \ Corel \ CorelDraw Graphics suite X… \ Setup \ CSG… \ ShellExt.msi)
Double click on ShellExt.msi to reinstall.
Then you restart your computer and now the corel files have shown the thumbnail icon for you.
