    You would be better off asking the question to the developer of Sumatra PDF who was apparently in the process of development of what you wanted four years ago ...

    Ever heard of Paint? (I assume you mean jpgs) - i.e. those are file types for which Windows does provide some way of handling.

    You are not hearing the answer- or perhaps you simply don't want to listen and you want the answer you expect and only that.

    If unhappy, please feel free to use the Feedback Hub app to complain to MS.
    yes,sorry, jpegs
    Not unhappy xD, but confussed that some programs dont include their own handlers and others do, and not sure whose fault it is when preview thumbnails are not shown in windows. :P

    Really was disappointed that here we are in 2020 and nobody had a real solution for this. So. I got together with a coder and with a few modifications of available technology, have released a new program that fully supports EPUB, CBZ and CBR files. Enjoy!

    I dearly thank you and the team for coming together and creating this. What a life saver!

    Are there plans to add support for mobi files? Those behave like epubs on the surface.

    If not, no matter. Alissa's MobiHandler seems to work just fine on Win10.

    Oh, I just noticed DarkThumbs works for some epub files but not others. Strange.

    Hi there
    I'd install Calibre - acts also as a e-book reader, can convert between the various formats and can copy into kindles etfc.

    I like calibre since it means you can get say an epub e-book , convert to mobi / AZI3 and then load it into a kindle so one isn't restricted to amazon for .mobi type of e-books. (BTW Free)

    calibre - E-book management

    enjoy

    Cheers

    Hi there

    @Unknow0059

    I'm on Linux at the moment but identical interface on Windows
    You can convert books (arrow on the toolbar), get book details inc publication date etc, read e-book, copy from / to device, add books easily, save books to any file on computer (you don't have to store in calibre library) and many other things - it's an excellent program.
