    Been using resizer for years....brilliant little tool.

    Um pretty sure I could preview svg's due to normal codecs being added, not sure on markdown but wouldn't be shocked there either. I really wish MS would just bake in thumbnail support for as many file formats as possible... we still don't even have native pdf thumbnails, even though MS can print pdf's from some programs... this is something os-x has had for ages and I really wish MS would catch up here.

    Re: Microsoft PowerToys adds Window Walker, Image Resizer

    I got really confused for a moment, as I've been using that resizer tool for years:
    https://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/

    I went to the website and then saw this update from the developer:
    "The Microsoft PowerToys team and I got in contact, and we decided to move Image Resizer for Windows into the PowerToys project, thus restoring it to its rightful place."

    This makes me happy, as more people will get to experience this simple but excellent tool.
