Questions about converting a NEF file to PNG file. Can anyone kindly help please?

I have a Nikon J2 which doesn't produce a very good image quality when using jpg format.

so, I installed the NEF codec and found that the raw images are much sharper and the colors are much better than jpeg format when viewed in Windows photo viewer with the codec.

So, I saved the preview image by pressing the Print Screen key on the keyboard as a png file, and that looked much better than jpeg too.

if the NEF preview is shown on the screen, that means the data has already been stored in the video memory right? but why NX2 or Photoshop can't save the raw image directly to a bitmap file? or is there a way to do so?

jpg sucks badly with 1 inch sensor.
