View thumbnail for .wmf/.emf files? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In Windows explorer one can view images in thumbnails. For some reasons however, I need to conveniently view a number of .wmf (Windows Metafile) and .emf(Enhanced Metafile) files with thumbnails, which are from unzipped .docx Word embedded contents. I didn’t find it possible with Windows Explorer.

    Is there a way to enable them?

  • Hi,

    You are right, I have tested in Windows7/XP, both.wmf (Windows Metafile) and .emf(Enhanced Metafile) files with thumbnails cannot show up.

    According your description, this issue is more Windows Client related. In order to get the answer effectively, it is recommended to post a new thread in Windows Client Forum for further discussion.
