    Is it possible to make Windows 10 see CR3 thumbnails?

    windows and mac do not thumbnail cr2 raw files, you can shoot raw+jpg for that reason.

    If your mean to see a thumbnail of a CR2 RAW file using Windows, it works fine with my copy of Windows 10.

    I guess that in time, CR3 files will be supported as well.

    Well I'll be damned, I knew this was never native functionality in the past, and didn't remember seeing it when I updated my windows machine from 7 to 10. I guess they developed a raw codec that supports many common Raw files and at some point built it into the OS, I see threads about downloading it for Win 8 and 10.
    .. To be fair I use a Macbook Pro for all my photo editing so I never spent any real time with the files in windows so this was never on my radar.
