See this thread on what directoryOpus is

Basically, use PDF-x-change as your .pdf default app protocol.

Then you can use it to get image previews of your PDFs inside directoryOpus

enter image description here

Very useful if you do a lot of PDF based work and need to preview thumbnails of your PDFs quickly

Plus adobe reader is generally the only other alternative here for PDF thumbnail preview.... and there monetizing everything / extremely invasive

Tried the others Foxit (too bloated now) , Nitro (too slow) , Sumatra (no outook previewers) , and the others not stable enough.

Don't use the new Editor free version though, that has the slow pdf print engine. If you need to print to pdf, just use the one in Windows.

Really love it. In the past year(s) both Foxit and Adobe (Adobe a looong time ago) started being laggy and buggy. I appreciate the way how PDF X Change loads very quickly, both the document but also the comment panel, search results and so on.

It is the only program I am aware of that allow you to search through folders of PDF files for a specific text occurrence. When you have huge folders of PDFs and need the one that has a name or address or whatever in it. A little slow but a lot quicker than manually loading and searching each file.

Foxit Reader does it, too.

For searches through the content of many kinds (not only PDF) of different files, FileLocator is a lifesaver: FileLocator icon FileLocator
