I have noticed recently that using thumbnail view in Windows Explorer occasionally makes it easier to find stuff in Solidworks folders. This could be really handy for non SW workstation users, like service personnel. I suspect that the presence of "thumbs.db" file in a folder makes thumbnail view of SW files possible.
It seems that, on workstations not equipped with SW, the thumbnail view of SW files is not available. This also seems to be true with SW Viewer (but no SW) installed.
Is there any way for non-SW equipped workstations to display SW files as thumbnails? Malcolm
