Preview for all text files

Post by sunamo » Sat Nov 07, 2020 2:47 pm

For example, for .cmd is preview showing but for .ps1 not. It would be super useful!

Thanks for implementing

Seeing as this is filed under Suggestions, may I suggest a possible feature where Everything attempts to use the Text preview handler for unknown file-types, assuming this doesn't have disastrous results for huge files or binary contents. Or is preview handling completely hands-off without the ability to assert the handler-type?

Yes. Everything uses the File Explrer preview mechanism for all files except image files.
Handling previewing text files internally is on the to-do list
