  1. Windows Explorer File Preview pane not working


    File Previews in the explorer preview pane are not working for me.


    I found a fix here, but the file which it suggests you edit is not in my registry:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced - ShowPreviewHandlers


    There is no ShowPreviewHandlers in my registry



    Fix post that I'm referring to

    :)

  2. preview/details pane in explorer

    Hi,

    Setting the Preview pane to show or hide in File Explorer will apply to all folders. If you wish to hide the Preview pane in File Explorer, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Tap on View tab.
    • Click Preview Pane to view/hide it.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.

    Windows Explorer File Preview pane not working

    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?
