Using the preview pane in File explorer lets you view a preview of almost any files in Windows 10


  1. hi, do you know maybe how to make text in preview pan available for copy-paste options? I just do not want to open files but to be able to select something right from the preview pan and copy it somewhere. I have w10 but i remember in some previous versions this was possible…not sure if it is because of w10 or some settings….

  2. In my windows 10…the preview pane sticks out and off its original place…is on my left and if i open another program…say crome…it sticks out over the chrome…like it is not part of file explorer…the only thing i can do is minimize the file explorer or deselect the file that was selected…DOES someone know anything about this?

  3. Yes I use it and I like it but I would like to set it differently from a file to another like my picture file would be set to view at a certain size and my movie file would be set on details, I would like to save it but you just can set it once and no matter what files you open it the same setting…..?
