Preview Pane customization in Windows Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I would like to add a visualization plugin to Windows Explorer that enhances the Preview Pane (bottom).

    What programmatic options do I have? Can I implement a COM object that can be queried for rendering the preview pane for all folders?

  • Preview handlers are used to show content in the preview pane on the right hand side of explorer views.  You can find their documentation here.

    Property handlers are used to populate the text shown at the bottom of the explorer view in the details pane.  But it is not possible to extend the visualization of the details pane.  You can find property system documentation here.
