There should be an option to display the files as thumbnails in the result list.
When I bought it I just assumed it would have a thumbnail view somewhere but apparently not. The search features have been absolutely incredible! Earlier today I searched for a file in explorer, remembered this was in my tray, punched it in and got abou 80 results and had what I wanted in about 6 seconds. Meanwhile Explorer was still running and after 3 minutes, never found it.
So it's awesome. But it kills me when it comes to any kind of image, video, or doc. When I do a search for something difficult, I get a lot of results of course. And to narrow that down I have to individually open in another app. It's crazy when I have thousands of files called 173gY822d988h3is77_87iue287.png (images for websites and other marketing). I get that sometimes you wouldn't want it slowed for thumbs but at the very least there should be a checkbox to enable/disable it.
When looking for IMAGE files, being able to see the contents as a thumbnail really seems to be the most "natural" mode to view them. Often this will enable finding a desired item at a glance. By scanning a page-full at a time. / Having the side-view... with ONE at a time, really falls short. / Speeding things up when it's not needed will be automatic, whenever Thumbnail View is not selected. / I miss this capability every day.
