File preview in file explorer

I see that this was requested a couple of years ago, but I want to add it again. Perhaps the print preview code could be modified to provide this function. I have at least a couple of hundred layout files and a file preview feature would greatly help with housekeeping. I could remove the not so good plans and leave just the ones that have potential. Thanks!


While some users may find this useful, it might also slow down Windows explorer further to have another filetype to check and then it would also have to open each file with AnyRail to decipher the content.  Using AnyRail as it stands, if this functionality is needed, perhaps exporting an identically named jpeg file could help. Windows already has the option to show these as icons of varying size. If files are sorted by name then the thumbnails will appear adjacent to the .any files.  Personally, and for speed reasons, I often turn this windows feature off by default.
