On windows 10 I was using SageThumbs to have a preview of images in my context menu. SageThumbs dose no longer work with Windows 11. So I am using ACDsee's Picaview and it's working fine. The only problem is that I can see the preview in the second Context menu (After choosing "Show More Options") and not on the primary one. I was wondering if there is anyway to add the preview on the first one?

here is how it works now:

I right click on an image and first menu opens:


Then I click on "Show more options" and I finally get my image preview:


It would be great if I could find a stand alone software that would give image preview when hovering mouse over the image!

Btw there is a software that dose exactly what I want. It's called QTTabBar. Once you install it , if you hover your mouse pointer on top of an image, you will see a preview of the image (not in context menu, which is even better)

But I don't need the other options of that software. So maybe it would be possible to extract only this part or find a similar software!

Explorer Patcher restores 1-tier context menus.
Thanks Anixx. I know that. But I really like the windows 11 new context menu and it's shortcuts and would like to keep it.
I think the best option is hidden somewhere in QTTabBar. I need to find which dll is responsible for the image preview and try to use that.
Help would of course be appreciated.
