when Mp3tag Mpeg Options set to ID3v2.4 UTF-8.
MP3 Cover Images are displayed when Mp3tag Mpeg Options set to ID3v2.4 ISO-8859-1.

Best Results:
Read checked: ID3v1, ID3v2, APE
Write checked: ID3v1, ID3v2, ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1, ID3v2 only if ID3v1 too small
Remove checked: ID3v1, ID3v2, APE

Cover Images not displayed:
Read checked: ID3v1, ID3v2
Write checked: ID3v1, ID3v2, ID3v2.4 UTF-8, ID3v2 only if ID3v1 too small
Remove checked: ID3v1, ID3v2, APE

I have observed this problem the first time in november 2016 with mp3tagv279setup.exe.

This is a known shortcoming of the Windows Explorer: it cannot cope with V2.4 tags.
This has nothing to do with MP3tag.

MP3Tag dooes not have an option to write ID3v2.4 ISO-8859-1. So you probably mean ID3v2.3 ISO-8859.
As Ohrenkino already wrote the windows-explorer could not handle ID3v2.4-Tags.
But at least since the Windows 10 Creators update in spring the explorer is able to show those tags.
There is a thread in the German part of this forum about this feature:
Kann Windows 10 endlich id3v2.4 Tags lesen?

I never use the preview pane for MP3s in Windows but I just tested it with the latest Windows 10 (Fall Creators Update) and cover images in ID3v2.4-tags are displayed.
