Windows 7 and Vista display most mainstream and multimedia file
types in a preview pane. Activate it by going to Windows Explorer
(click Start and type “explorer.exe” in the “Search programs and
files” box) and clicking the icon in the upper right corner.
Unfortunately, if a multimedia file type is not associated with
Windows Media Player, you’ll see only an icon of its associated
application. Not to worry. A utility called PreviewConfig.exe from
winhelponline.com will let you preview a slew of lesser known file
Note: This link takes you to the vendor’s site,
where you can download the latest version of the software.
