A Windows Explorer preview pane handler for Markdown files


Inspired by SharpShell, a well documented framework for creating Windows Shell Extensions, combined with my search for a preview handler for .md files this tiny project was born.

What does it do?

It displays .md files as MarkDown in the Windows Explorer preview pane

How to install

Download and run the latest installer from MarkdownPreview releases on GitHub.


Next to SharpShell, this project uses MarkDig styled by MarkdownPad CSS.
