Viewing RAW files in Windows Explorer and Photo Gallery

If you shoot in RAW like me, and use a Windows computer like me, you might like to download Microsoft's RAW file viewer. The download will work on both Vista and Windows 7 machines (sorry XP holdouts).

With this installed you can view your RAW files when using Windows Explorer or the Windows Photo Gallery.
