EOS 5d4 / 6d2 RAW files can't preview in Windows 10 explorer - codec?

I'm sure this has been discussed before but I can't find it now.

Windows explorer won't preview .cr2 RAW files from the 5d4 or 6d2 (and no doubt many other recent cameras). Is there any way to get a codec that will allow these to be seen within Windows 10 explorer? I know some other programs will display these image previews, such as Irfanview or Faststone, but I want to use explorer as its often the quickest and easiest way to import, move images etc.

Any help would be appreciated.  It does seem bizarre as these RAW files already have an embedded jpeg which is used by other software to display a preview.  Thanks!
