How to register file types for Explorer Preview Pane?
I like the idea of the integrated Preview Pane. It's great for text files, so
that you don't need to open Notepad to read every file in a directory.

I would like to "register" many other file types with the same preview
handler. For instance, *.sql, *.cs, *.aspx .... however, I can't for the life
of me figure out how I can associate extensions with preview handlers in
Vista.

Anyone know how?

Here you go, Portman:

Registering Preview Handlers:

The plain-text preview handler GUID is {1531d583-8375-4d3f-b5fb-d23bbd169f22}

I'm not interested in changing what program is used to _open_ the file. The
extensions are all registered with their appropriate programs (Visual Studio,
SSMS, etc).

I want to register how Windows "previews" the files in the Preview Pane.
