Just wondered if file preview was 'on the cards' for the Windows Explorer task bar?

Well done with build 16!

Hi Barry,

we will be offering a directory file preview in Explorer - but I suspect this is not quite what you mean - could you please expand a little ?

If 'the other viewer' is installed and you click on a PDF icon in Explorer then, and providing the PDF file has no security, you see a small thumbnail preview of the PDF file at the bottom of the file tasks column on the LH side of the Explore window.

Do you see what I mean?

But, in case you don't see the attached screenshot

By the way, I know the screenshot shows the file as being a PDF-Xchange Viewer document, but the thumbnail preview only works for me if I also install AR8.

Our ActiveX does something similar - except it will also show a thumbnail of every PDF file in the folder.
