In Microsoft Project, in the File Open dialog box, the preview of a project may display as an icon.
NOTE: In Project 2010, set View to Medium Icons or larger in the File Open dialog to display the project previews. In Project 2007 and earlier versions, click the Preview toolbar button in the File Open dialog box to display the preview pane.
This behavior occurs in the File Open dialog box when you select a project that contains an inserted project, a resource pool, or a project that is password protected.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
