Preview pane in Windows Explorer, how to display various formats

Windows will display some formats in Windows Explorer's preview pane, such as .txt, .bmp, etc. However, there are several that it will not display, such as Open Office Writer documents. Is there a way to tell Windows what file types you want the preview pane to display?
