Sublime Text and Komodo IDE both have a very neat feature where you have a preview of the entire file you are working on in a "zoomed out" view that you can scrub up and down to move around your code.

Does anyone know if there is a way or an extension for Visual Studio to have a similar style preview?

The Productivity Power Tools 2012 offers and Enhanced Scrollbar feature along with many others. Also, when hovering over a section of the scroll bar, it also displays a snippet of that code that corresponds with your cursor position (shown below).

Starting PowerTools 2013 you will not find this feature. Because it is integrated in VS. For activating this: right-click on the scrollbar -> scrollbar options... ->behavior -> use map mode. Works also with VS2015

In Visual Studio (March 2019) 1.33 you can do this:

View --> Toggle Minimap
