Registry Editing Tips

Using Quick View On Any File

A handy tool that comes with Windows95/98 is the Quick View application. By right-clicking on some files, you'll see an option called Quick View, that will allow you to view the contents of a file without opening the application. The problem is that this doesn't work with just any file. Some files are sometimes just stamped with and unknown extension but maybe the contents can still be viewed with Quick View.

Open up registry editor and go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\. Under this key, add a new key named QuickView. Set the value of the Default value to * and close the Registry Editor. This should work for most files now. And who said Quick View is useless?
