This freeware plug-in gives you PDF preview capabilities on the fly. PDF previewer enables you to see the contents of a PDF document without opening it. When browsing through a stack of PDFs, this makes it easy to identify the one you need and then open the same. A thumbnail shows the PDF document content page by page. Simply browse and click on any PDF document, and its content is shown in the Preview pane of Windows Explorer. If in outlook, the reading pane will show the content.
The icon of your PDF document is generated from the cover page of the PDF document. Navigating through the document and previewing page by page is managed through Previous Page or Next Page buttons. Going directly to the very first page or the last page is also possible. Actual size viewing is possible through double clicking. Mouse wheel scrolling through the document is also possible. The PDF pages can be copied as images to the clipboard or as complete text depending on what you need for further processing in another application.
It is compatible with Windows 8, PDF files in some 86 languages and 64 bit operating systems. Compatibility with 64 bit OS ensures significantly faster operation of the tool. In the Windows explorer, the icon view gives you access to all the PDFs as these preview icons and you can browse through the complete document or just the cover page to decide if you want to open the file to get at the right content. This is a very good product. If you are looking for a similar solution, this is a good candidate for a trial in your exact set up.
