    Foxit PhantomPDF Questions


    Thinking of buy this and I'm wondering if it supports previews in file explorer.

    I'd also appreciate hearing any pros and cons about it and about any cheaper alternatives.

    Thanks in advance.

    Foxit Reader is free to use. Fine software. Enables you to do some manipulation with pdf files (editing bookmarks, anotations...)
    I'm not aware of it being capable of file preview. It opens pretty fast.
    This is pdf file in Large icons view: Edit: preview is part of Windows system.

    Thanks AndreTen. Thanks for the info. I found a users guide and V9 (paid) that has a installable preview that works with file explorer. It looks really nice. I have Acrobat Standard V9.5 that I've been using for a long time but it's not very secure. I may do the trial version.
