Nemo [window] doesn't give proper thumbnails after update to 20.1


I upgraded my laptop to Mint 20.1
If I download a file to my desktop I get a proper icon of the kind that reflects the contents.

If I move or copy it to a nemo window, I just get a generic icon that reflects the file type.

This applies to PNG, PDF, JPEG and others.

My laptop has a lot of crud on it, but even so...

A little more info about your setup:
  • desktop environment
  • user customisations
  • what was the situation before the upgrade
Did you check nemo's settings?
What is managing the desktop? Nemo, too?

I'm using Mint 20.1 , Cinnamon with Nemo 4.8.4, no significant customisations.
However, thanks to your comment:-

led me to check a toolbar setting on Nemo.

There is an optional icon to toggle showing thumbnails - not sure why its a good idea - confused me anyway.
The desktop [also controlled by nemo] automatically has it set on.

So it's fixed.

Because some people don't care for them, and because they can be a drag on resources, esp. with large images and PDFs and who knows what else.
Configurability is a Good Thing.
So toggling that solved it. Good.
