I see you have added support for the Preview Pane in Window 10 but I cant seem to get it working. I want to be able to preview MP3 & WAV files?

Many Thanks

It is currently only done for video files.

You can add it yourself with this registry tweak:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.mp3\shellex\{8895b1c6-b41f-4c1c-a562-0d564250836f}]
@="{031EE060-67BC-460d-8847-E4A7C5E45A27}"

Hi, I get as far as "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.mp3" but the rest of the string you sent is missing from the registry, do I need to add a folder called shellex?

The preview pane functionality in Windows 10 is very unstable. It may cause Explorer to hang or crash in some cases.

Im willing to take that risk, I can just delete the registry keys if I have problems. I just tried to see if I could preview a video file in the Preview Pane but I see no play button just the thumbnail?

Copy the whole text and put it into a text file with extension .reg
Then double-click on that file to import the key into your registry.
