How to view psd and pdf thumbnails instead of icones in Windows 7

    Question

  • I am a new user of Windows 7.

    In the document folders all the pdf, psd, idd, etc... thumbnails have been replaced by standard icones.

    How can I get the thumbnails back?

    In Windows vista I used the psicon.dll in Adobe shell, but it's not working with Windows 7.

  • You will need an image codec or a thumbnail provider for each file format.

    Our PSD codec provides thumbnails for PSD, INDD, AI, and EPS files on 64 bit and 32 bit Windows 7.

    A free trial is available at http://www.ardfry.com/psd-codec
