Bitmaps as icons

You can preview bitmaps (.BMP files) as icons in Explorer instead of the default icon of the application it is associated with. Open the Registry Editor and navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Paint.Picture\DefaultIcon. Double-click the Default string and change it’s value to ‘%1’ (without double-quotes). Close the Registry Editor and restart Windows.
