How preview pdf, docx and other files i TC

Post by *JesperRed »

I have installed the IrfanView plugin and now I can very easily preview jpg and other grafic files, with "Ctrl +q" or F3. Very good.
But how to do the same for other kind of files like pdf, docx, ppt...?

Preview works very fine for pdf and ppt in File Explorer.
Click on View -> and then select Preview Pane, but I don't want to use File Explorer I want to use TC

(Sorry if this question is very stupid, but I can find help)

You can go to https://totalcmd.net/directory/lister.html and find a pluging for your filetype.

BTW - you don't need plugins or IrfanView (which is not a plugin) to view jpg, png, gif and bmp file - TC can show them by itself.

You can also in TC 9.5x try the new "Explorer Preview" (Press 8 in lister), it can show a lot of the formats that File Explorer can show.

Thanks Peter
Very good with the Explorer Preview, it works for some file types but not all like .ppt
But if I use File Explorer I word fast and easy with excel, ppt and word (I have office Installed)
is it possible to use the same viewers in TC?
