Is it possible in windows explorer to see eps as thumbnails.

I can´t find that much on the subject - I tried to install ghostscript, as I read somewhere, but installing this did not help anything on the problem ?

It doesn't appear that they are supported. However, you could install this Explorer plugin to display thumbnail views for PSD and EPS files -

Apologies, I hadn't noticed the bold text saying it didn't work on Windows 7!

When working from within a program, such as Illustrator or Photoshop, browse with the "Adobe dialogue" instead of the "OS dialogue"  (there's a button to the bottom left).
Alternatively, use IFRANVIEW, a freeware graphics viewer.
There may also be a .dll you can download and drop into the Adobe > Shell folder.

Irfanview does this do that if I am in photoshop and want to open a psd file I can see the thumb - because if I have to open irfanview to browse the idea is gone.

Commented:
IFRANVIEW works like the Adobe Browser - you have to view through thumbnails through the IFRANVIEW browser. The only reason I suggested it was if the Adobe Browser was unavailable.

I just started using this great program, it will generate explorer thumbnails for most formats and has been very stable for me so far.
