problem - preview mode

Postby dfus_chai » Thu Dec 28, 2017 11:34 am

problem

I do preview mode
The first file I click on - see preview
The second and third files and so forth that appear in the results list - when I click on them one click - no longer see a preview
Only on the first file it works

what can be done?

I remember having the same issue with .ICO files when I was playing with the preview option some time ago.
Later on that problem disappeared somehow.

What files are causing this in your case?
Are the files displayed in Explorer's preview?
And - very important in this case- what Windows version and Everything version are you on?

Please try the latest Everything nightly build.
  • Completely exit Everything (right click the Everything system tray icon and click Exit).
  • Replace your Everything.exe with the latest Everything nightly build.
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /preview_context=5
  • Restart Everything (right click the Everything system tray icon and click Exit, relaunch Everything).

-or-

Disable the preview handler for ico files and let Everything use its inbuilt ico preview handler:
  • From the Start menu, click Run
  • Type in the following and press ENTER:
    regedit
  • Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\icofile\ShellEx
  • Rename {8895b1c6-b41f-4c1c-a562-0d564250836f} to _{8895b1c6-b41f-4c1c-a562-0d564250836f}

void wrote:/preview_context=5

Somehow I can't find any information on this option, other than an announcement that it was added to a nghtly version.
Am I looking in the wrong places?

[*]Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\icofile\ShellEx
[*]Rename {8895b1c6-b41f-4c1c-a562-0d564250836f} to _{8895b1c6-b41f-4c1c-a562-0d564250836f}[/list]


Wouldn't that also disable the ICO preview handler in File Explorer or any other filemanager?

preview_context was added in Everything 887

It can be used to specify how the preview handler will run.

It can be zero or more of the following flags:
CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER (0x1)
CLSCTX_INPROC_HANDLER (0x2)
CLSCTX_LOCAL_SERVER (0x4)
CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER16 (0x8)
CLSCTX_REMOTE_SERVER (0x10)
CLSCTX_INPROC_HANDLER16 (0x20)
CLSCTX_RESERVED1 (0x40)
CLSCTX_RESERVED2 (0x80)
CLSCTX_RESERVED3 (0x100)
CLSCTX_RESERVED4 (0x200)
CLSCTX_NO_CODE_DOWNLOAD (0x400)
CLSCTX_RESERVED5 (0x800)
CLSCTX_NO_CUSTOM_MARSHAL (0x1000)
CLSCTX_ENABLE_CODE_DOWNLOAD (0x2000)
CLSCTX_NO_FAILURE_LOG (0x4000)
CLSCTX_DISABLE_AAA (0x8000)
CLSCTX_ENABLE_AAA (0x10000)
CLSCTX_FROM_DEFAULT_CONTEXT (0x20000)
CLSCTX_ACTIVATE_32_BIT_SERVER (0x40000)
CLSCTX_ACTIVATE_64_BIT_SERVER (0x80000)

There should not be a ico preview handler, it was most likely installed by a third party.
Windows Explorer will use a built-in icon preview handler if one is not specified.
