    Lightbulb See PDFs in Preview Pane of File Explorer (Win10)

    HelloSince I'm disallowed in bringing up an old topic, I have to make a new one.Old topic :http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...er/page3?&Very insightful discussion, thanks everyone.In the end, SumatraPDF reader seems to work best for me, my goal being to see PDF's in the Preview Pane of File Explorer ( Windows 10 x64, build 10074).(SumatraPDF doesn't even need to be the default PDF reader to do that.)

    It's strange that Windows 10 currently has Reader and Print to PDF, but no preview without an add-on.

    It also has Project Spartan as a alternate (or is it supposed to be the principal?) PDF reader.

    Well, it's not like Win 10 has been released yet...

    One reason is probably that Microsoft is afraid people will complain if every "Adobe-PDF" feature (see the linked discussion thread) isn't properly supported by the preview. Might also involve security risks.
