I need Windows to show me thumbnails for my FZ300

Shooting RAW is a massive improvement in quality -- no more oatmeal artifacts! Now I'd like to be able to view thumbnails from the RAW files in Windows without opening Silkypix etc.

1. Alas, Panasonic does not seem to provide a codec for Windows 10 -- the one that I found only seems to support cameras from 2010 and before.

Can anyone provide a link to the most recent codec that enables thumbnail view in Windows explorer?

2. I found a Microsoft link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26829

But this only lists cameras from 2014 and before.

3. Do we know why have Panasonic and Microsoft both stopped supporting more recent cameras?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
