Not free, but the $9.99 that I paid for this back in 2015 has proved to be money well spent -

http://www.fastpictureviewer.com/codecs/

It's been through the various updates of Windows and runs under 10 as well as it did with previous ones, and works with all the different RAWs - and other file types I've used over the years.

You might take advantage of the free trial before parting with your money!

Re: .RAW Codex

I believe there is a free app in the Microsoft Store but I think it requires a relatively recent version of Windows?

MS Windows 10 (ver. 1903) Raw Image Extension

If you have the Windows 10 May 2019 ver. 1903 Update can download the latest
MS Windows 10 Raw Image Extension — see DPR News Article HERE.

Or the old standby; do a Google Search "windows 10 raw extension".

Cheers,
Jon

I found that one yesterday. You may not have noticed but there are more 'didn't work' reviews than worked reviews. I installed it yesterday and it DOES NOT WORK for me!

And, I have Googled 'till my fingers are give out and found nobody else that has one.

Have not look at the reviews lately; hence why I posted links FYI; nothing new that people generally take the time to post negative reviews than positive.

... I installed it yesterday and it DOES NOT WORK for me!...

Sorry, just trying to help.

Works FINE on my main PC, my laptop, and my wife's laptop—all using Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit. PC and laptops all kept up to date with latest drivers, BIOS, etc. updates from Dell.

... And, I have Googled 'till my fingers are give out and found nobody else that has one...

From quick Google Search found the "FastPictureViewer Codec Pack" posted by
Isola Verde , and "FastRawViewer".

May not be to your liking/ needs, but that's different issue.

Personally have not used Windows Explorer for viewing/ managing image files for over 20 years. Originally used IrfanView then switch to FastStone Image Viewer.

Cheers,
Jon

I just found your reply.

Sorry, my reply was not intended to hostile. I apologize.

I tried FastPictureViewer.  I would have been happy to pay $10 but it didn't work either.
