Python: preview .py in windows explorer

Mark python files to be displayed as text in the windows explorer preview pane

  • Open the registry editor (regedit in the start menu search) and navigate to computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.py
  • Make 2 new string values (REG_SZ) under the file extension’s key, Content Type and Perceived Type


Of course this works with any extention (.cs .css …)
