Show Bitmaps in Explorer
By default the explorer program shows icons as their actual picture in the listview pane of the display. This can be used a a great picture viewer program. It would be great to display bitmap files in the same manner. Well with a simple change to the registry you can:
  1. Backup Your Registry
  2. Run RegEdit
  3. Locate the following Reg Key
    HKEY_CLASSES_Root/Paint.Picture/DefaultIcon
  4. Double Click on the (Default) value in the right hand pane
  5. Change the value to %1
  6. Accept the changes and close Reg Edit

You will need to restart your machine for this to take effect but when you enter explorer you Bitmaps should be represented by a small version of the image.
