    Preview files (Word & Excel) (SP2)

    Remember the good old days when you could easily preview files of almost any type from Windows Explorer?

    Does anyone know if it is still possible under XP? If so can you let me know as I have hunted through Help and various web sites without success. TIA.

    Were you thinking about 'Quick View' with Win95? Look at some of the results of Google Search: quick view.

    Ah that was it! I used the wrong phrase. Only 99,400,000 hits, I'll get back to you next year with my findings. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> (Only kidding!)

    For anyone following this thread I have settled on File See at the TuCows for the time being. It works but you have to "F5" to refresh rthe file list.

    Thanks, Joe, for pointing me in the right direction.
