  6. Good ol' Irfanview does this with a second utility.

    Get irfanview here:


    Get the plugins also and be able to open many other media files.

    Get the fun, right-click utilities from here:


    Shell Extension is free, but Shell Picture is shareware with a
    thirty day trial. I find with the Thunbnail function of Irfanview
    I don't need Shell Pic much any more.

    Awesome. I haven't installed it yet but it looks like Shell Picture is
    exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you.

    Does it still have the icon of the road-killed cat for its shortcut?

    "It used to, didn't it?"

    It still does but I changed it to the little Koala bear.
    At least people all seem to agree that the icon they use is about the
    only thing wrong with the program.

  13. Yep, but I don't care. Irfanview even opens corrupt pic files.

    One of my hard drives died last year and I had to recover all of the
    files residing on that drive, cluster by cluster. Some of the files
    were pictures, and Windows Fax & Picture viewer will not open these
    raw files, but Irfanview does. I may not can see the entire file,
    but at least I have a clue about some of the graphics I lost.
    Irfanview is invaluable to me. I'll come across those particular
    graphics again, now that that I know what they were....;o)
