    Video in the preview pane

    Aileen,

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    What I really need to know is how get the video to play in the preview pane. Prior to Windows 10, this worked wonderfully and was an asset. Now, it requires making changes to the Windows registry - not recommended due to the enormous amount of issues with
    Windows 10.

    Any other suggestions?

  3. Video in the preview pane

    Hi,

    To enable the Preview pane, open File Explorer and follow these steps:


    • In the File Explorer window, click the View
      tab.

    • In the Panes section, click the Preview Pane button. The Preview pane is added to the right side of the File Explorer window.

    • Select several files one by one to preview their contents. You can preview their contents if they are text, images, or videos.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
