thumbnail preview option in windows
Is there any option in notepadplusplus to enable thumbnail preview in windows 11 or windows 10 file explorer ?
My pdf files and photo files shows thumbnail preview.
But text files do not show previews.
Though preview pane shows text file contents , but i want thumbnail previews.
notepadplusplus is my default opener of text files.
I think notepadplusplus needs to generate thumbnails to be shown by file explorer.
I cannot imagine that the developers would really want to spend the time writing that interface for previews… but if you wanted to ask them to, the Please Read Before Posting directs you to the actual location for feature requests.
I’m not sure if it’s possible to tell Windows to associate with one application, but use another for generating the preview, but if it were possible, that might be a workaround – either long term, or at least until the developers implement it (if they ever did).
