    SageThumbs Alternative or Fix?


    I've been using SageThumbs to preview PSD, Files in explorer for over a year.
    I've gotten so used to it..I find it incredibly hard to stay organised without it.

    With Windows 8... SageThumbs turns the Metro Tiles blank.
    I think it's related to some form of .PNG preview competition.
    I tried unchecking the .PNG option and rebooting...but it didn't work...

    Will there ever be a fix for this?
    I've been waiting...and waiting...no new version is ever posted...
    no patch...no news....

    Are there any decent alternatives?
    All my searches lead me back to Sage Thumbs..lol

    K I fixed it,
    In SageThumbs Settings...
    You have to scroll down the entire list and uncheck

    .APNG
    .PNG

    Theres two of them!
    I had only unchecked the first.

    then just save as normal and reboot...
    everything works... Metro, PNG, PSD etc..

Does anyone know of an alternative to ExpatShield which works in Windows 8 ? I've contacted ExpatShield and they currently have no plans for a W8 version. Strangely enough it worked perfectly in all of the preview versions. Thanks in advance for any help
Alternative to Unlocker in Software and Apps
Has any one found an alternative for unlocker that actually works in win 8? I forgot to try compatibility mode to see if that helps but it may be netter to use something more native in this case.
