If, like me, you have Windows 7 (or Vista) 64 bit installed, you may have noticed an annoying glitch – whilst the file previews are much better than they ever were in XP, they can’t quite manage PDFs. You get a funky message in fact:

PDF Preview Handler for Vista
To open this file in its own program, double-click it.
For the last 6 months, I’ve just kind of ignored this. But I finally got annoyed enough with it to try and find a solution. As with most of these things, 3 seconds on google found me the answer.
Sorted. It will update your registry to make thumbnails and previews work, making your life at least 3% better.
