Use Quick View with Any File

A handy tool that comes with Windows95 is the Quick View application. By right-clicking on some files, you'll see an option called Quick View, that will allow you to view the contents of a file without opening the application. The problem is that this doesn't work with just any file. To get your favorite files to work with the Quick Viewer, follow these steps:

Add a shortcut to QUIKVIEW.EXE (in your \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ folder) to your \WINDOWS\SENDTO folder.

This way, Quick Viewer will be accessible from the Send To submenu when you right click on any file.
