Hi,

I'm using WIndows XP Pro SP2.

I want to be able to preview pdf files in explorer much the same way as you can preview jpgs. I'm using the filmstrip view, and it just says "No preview available" but along the bottom, there are thumbnails.

I need this because I scan files to my computer, they are named numerically, and I need to be able to click, preview and rename in that window - I previously used to scan to jpg and do this, but I would much prefer to use pdf files.

Is there any way I can do this?

Thanks
Steve

No there isn't. This would require a "built in" viewer which does not exist in XP. Just use thumbnail view I guess. If you want bigger thumbnalis use Paintshop Pro to browse, you can set the thumb size easily.
