Foxit PDF Reader has an option, when installing the program, to install a preview handler that will allow you to view PDF files in Everything's Preview Pane.

You can also try using PreviewConfig - get it here: http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/previ ... ows-vista/

PreviewConfig enables you to register preview handlers for different file types that Everything's Preview Pane may not initially recognize, and not be able to be viewed. For example, there are many file types which are actually plain text files, but with different extensions. Some of these extensions are not automatically recognized by Everything, but after using PreviewConfig, Everything will be able to view these new file types in its Preview Pane.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC also shows pdf previews in Everything x86/x64.

SumatraPDF also works for the Everything preview pane.
