Is there a way to use Thunderbird to preview eml files in the Windows Explorer?

I have seen this topic but it doesn't answer the question : Get Explorer preview for .eml files in Windows 7

  • Is there a way to use Thunderbird to preview files in Explorer.... What ? – Dave Jul 26 '16 at 7:44
  • @Dave: Windows Explorer supports shell extensions which provide previews for file types, e.g. Adobe Reader generates thumbnails for PDFs. – user1686 Jul 26 '16 at 8:20
  • @grawity, I understand that. I understand using Windows to preview .eml files. I don't understand how to use Thunderbird within Windows Explorer :( – Dave Jul 26 '16 at 8:21
  • Does Thunderbird provide a preview handler for the eml files in the Windows Exporer ? – abillon Jul 26 '16 at 11:35
  • Here is an image of the explorer with the built-in PreviewHandler of eml files. I would like to find another one as the built-in one is not really great. heberger-image.fr/data/images/87178_explorer.jpg – abillon Jul 26 '16 at 14:23
