SageThumbs is a powerful shell extension allowing to preview enormous amount of image formats directly in Windows Explorer by using Pierre-e Gougelet's GFL library (XnView's author).
Please read carefully the following information:
As SageThumbs is a Windows Explorer context menu extension, there is no an executable file that you should launch to bring it up. To use it, just open any folder with image files in Windows Explorer, and then right-click a file you want to preview. You'll see the thumbnail immediately in the context menu.

Hi, I would like to make a suggestion. I currently have a large number of TIFF files that are 48 bits per pixel. I would like to view these in Windows Explorer, but it is not possible unless I convert them to 24 bits per pixel. I hoped SageThumbs would fix this problem, but it only displays half of the full image, and the color is all distorted. I think it would be great if this was a feature that you could add to SageThumbs. Then I could view my TIFF thumbnails in Windows Explorer without problems. Otherwise, it looks like some great software! Thanks!
A graphic designer and I find it so useful. Cheers to the team!
It just works
I'm totally lovin' the image preview in Explorer right-click menu AND the extended info tips!
I find this app easy to use and it works on windows 10 x64 which I love.
