Bridge downloader will not preview Z6 nef files Windows 10

I use Mojave and Windows 10. In Mojave things work as they should: the Bridge downloader displays preview thumbnails of Z6 nef images on the XQD card and Bridge itself will preview those files if pointed to that XQD card.

In Windows 10 the Bridge downloader only shows an icon for NEF files. Bridge itself will preview the files if pointed at the XQD card. Once NEF files are downloaded to the computer storage drive Bridge also previews the NEF files and works as it should.

Bridge and the downloader behave the same whether reading nef files via an XQD card reader or directly attached to the camera. Works as expected in Mojave, does not work in Windows 10.

I installed the NEF codec, in an attempt to solve this, and Win 10 file explorer shows a preview of Z6 nef files as it should.

Updating preferences, completely uninstalling and reinstalling Bridge, nothing fixes the Bridge downloader. The Adobe raw converter is the latest and greatest. Adobe support has been everything I have come to expect after years of faithful tithing.

Obviously there are workarounds but I have been using the Bridge downloader since forever so a hard habit to break.
