Adding unrecognized image files format to windows explorer preview
I use a program called SnagIt to capture screenshots, the program has a native file format called SNAG, this is similar to what a PSD is to Photoshop. Is there any way to setup Windows explorer to recognize this file format is being an image file (similar to a JPEG or GIF)?
In Windows explorer you can see a thumbnail preview of these types of images, I'd like to have explorer do the same for the SNAG file format. Is this possible?
So it'll preview SNAG files like this:

hi tehprince, and welcome to sevenforums,
this would only be possible if snagit have released some sort of plug-in for windows explorer, which they haven't.
as you were told on the techsmith forum, the snag format is proprietary and as such only they know how to open or display snag images. even microsoft doesn't know how snag files are constructed, so they can't be shown in explorer.
