    I do not have any clue how to fix this problem. The preview pane is blank when trying to view documents in Windows vista. I have everything set like it should be in the folders and have it on but still its not working. I really hope someone can find a solution. I have windows vista home premium its a 64. Hope someone can help me. Thank you.

    preview in Explorer View

    I'm not sure why you can't get preview to work in Vista .. it works on my Windows Explorer

    perhaps try an alternative free trial of this preview tool to see if you get the same symptoms

    Explorer View for Windows Explorer

    I decided to purchase a licence since it was useful for previewing lots of documents.


    p.s. after posting the above I found this tutorial ..

    4. Check the Show preview handlers in preview pane box.
    NOTE: Unchecking this will not remove the preview pane, but their will be no preview of the file in the preview pane. It will just be empty.

    Do you have "show preview handlers" ticked?
