    A nice little tool that does exaclty what the tile says. You can view thumbnails for dds files direcly in Explorer, which makes it very convenient when working with textures. For skins, tracks or cars.

    You can find the nvidia tool there: http://www.nvidia.com/object/dds_thumbnail_viewer.html

    And if you want (much) more features, you can go for this one: http://mysticcoder.net/mysticthumbs.html#download

    EDIT: eventhough the mysticthumbs does support a lot of formats, I find it a bit too agresive/intrussive. For my taste..

    Sorry for the necrobump but I installed the Nvidia thumbnail viewer, restarted my PC and still DDS files don't have thumbnails.
    What am I missing here? The process should be automatic, yes?
    I don't want to install sagethumbs as I've read it can cause issues with Win 10.
    Thanks.

    I use sagethumbs on W10 and it works fine.

    I have not had any of those issues.
