I am able to preview epub thumbnail on windows explorer via CBX Shell. However, MOBI and AZW files didn't have a thumbnail. How to solve the problem? Should I convert to epub files?

If you have a Windows machine, MobiHandler should work for you.

  • Excuse me, do you have mobihandler file? The download link is dead.

  • Use the second Skydrive link and download mobihandler-1-0-setup.msi.

  • I installed mobihandler 1.1 on win10 but it doesn't work. I decided to delete mobi and azw and store ebooks only with pdf and epub formats.

Works for ePub. Me and the developer created this


Works for Mobi (Same as 4665 posted but this is the current link)


I am trying to work with DK101 to have DarkThumbs support Mobi and Azw, but coding costs money and takes time so I am trying to round up some donations to have it done.
