Help Explorer display thumbnails for all your video files

Media Preview is an interesting tool which tries to ensure Explorer will display useful thumbnails for all your video files.

And that means an end to browsing folders of videos and finding only general file-type icons, or plain black thumbnails which tell you nothing at all. Instead the program applies a little intelligence to try and ensure you get a frame from the clip which you might actually recognise (which is, after all, the whole point of displaying a thumbnail in the first place).

The program works with a lengthy list of video types: 3GP, AVI, FLV, MKV, MPEG 1/2/4, Ogg video, QuickTime, RealMedia, VOB, Windows Media, and assorted variations of each.

And for the most part it should just work, too. Install the right version for your PC (32 and 64-bit), reboot and the thumbnails ought to be visible right away.

If you do have any issues, though, the Media Preview Configuration dialog includes a lot of settings which can help. There are options relating to the file formats you'd like to support, system caching, performance, how the thumbnails are generated, and a whole lot more.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use and effective video tool

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 1709

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows - Fall Creators Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10? The latest release brings back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1607 which is the August 2016 Anniversary Update.
