PROS It's possible to configure the zoom of the thumbnails with a slider and it shows thumbnails if you place the pointer on an image

CONS It would be perfect if this add thumbnails for PDF (I think that depends on the PDF application that has windows 8 by default, perhaps with adobe it will be corrected), besides, I would like that when ordering by file type the GIFs are close to the images such as JPG, PNG, etc.

Its basically just a bloated windows explorer with QTTabBar. There is no uninstaller, upon uninstall it just tries to install again. Would highly advise against installing it.

I liked it, but it just isn't stable enough on Windows 10 for me to want to keep using. Crashes a lot.

What kind of bundleware is in this package? I closely investigated it and couldn't find any...
