    Windows explorer cover image thumbnails for ebooks


    Hi all, I once was able in my previous Windows 7 PC to set Windows Explorer to be able to show the cover image (first page) of an ebook when Windows Explorer was set to Thumbnail View.

    For PDF format I applied this fix, for mobi this one, but now I need to also extend thumbnail view to djvu and epub ebook formats, and I don't recall how I managed to do it in Windows 7. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

    (since I have a backup of my previous Windows 7 PC, is there a way to export the corresponding registry keys and import them in my current Windows 8.1 PC?)

    Hi, I faced issues with it as well.
    That;s what I did (read from a forum):
    Install Mobihandler, and that’s it. The next time you browse a folder that contains .AZW, .MOBI or .PRC ebook files (in icon or tile views) you will see the ebook cover as a thumbnail image. Note that if your ebook does not include a cover image the program will simply display the first page of the ebook as a thumbnail.
