Windows 7: Custom Preview Pane

Custom Preview Pane

I was wondering if it has become possible yet to allow the Preview Pane to only appear for specified folders rather than Windows Explorer providing it in all folders? I do really like it but I use the thumbnail view for videos and pictures and music so I can see what most of those files are if I don't remember the names but I have thousands of documents of stories and essays and projects that I really haven't got the time to "click and find out" with so having the Preview Pane for just My Documents and/or folder/s that contain documents would be a much less time consuming process for someone like me!

Cheers for any reply guys!

Hello Cornelius,

As far as I know, this will not be possible.
