Icon filenames disappeared

windows explorer's folder view or icons don't show the file name or folder name no more. I've had this problem before, I think hitting a shortcut for hiding it or soemthing.

This site gives a good explanation than I can on how to bring it back to check it out:


EDIT: in a nut shell

  1. Right-click on an empty space of the window
  2. Properties > Customise > Change "What kind of folder do you want?" into "Pictures and Videos"
  3. Click OK
  4. Right-click on an empty space of the window
  5. View > Select one of the icon views (XL, L, M, S. Does matter which one)
  6. Uncheck "Hide File Names"
  7. Repeat steps 1 and 2 if you need to revert to original folder type.
Main points to note: Pictures and Videos folder (2) and Icon view(5).
