JSI Tip 5837. How do I prevent Windows XP from displaying an image preview?

To prevent Windows XP from displaying an image preview:

1. Copy / Paste the following to a NoImagePrev.reg file:

REGEDIT4

\[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\ShellImagePreview\]

2. Merge the NoImagePrev.reg file with your registry or run regedit /s NoImagePrev.reg.

Note: To restore the capability of displaying an image preview, run the following .reg file:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\ShellImagePreview\]
@="\{e84fda7c-1d6a-45f6-b725-cb260c236066\}"
