I find that if I save a Word doc with preview info Windows Explorer will show a thumbnail of the first page if I tell explorer to show thumbnails. If I do not save with preview, Explorer does not show the first page even if I do set explorer to show thumbnails.

Perhaps that will help you track down the solution.

Thanks Brian. I appreciate the info, however I should have provided more information because I am trying to do this programmatically via .NET. Saving the Word doc with preview info is probably half of it, but I'd like to then create an actual thumbnail image to save either to the local hard drive or into a database.

Default How to generate thumbnail image at runtime in ASP.NET.

Sometimes we may need to generate the thumbnail size of image dynamically. Suppose one situation:

We have a list view, which shows the uploaded documents, but you need to show the thumbnail size of the images for the image files. But there is one condition: The original image file should not get loaded, because that will make the page heavy.
So, We need to generate the Thumbnail size of image on the fly.

At this point Generic WebHandler will help us. How? Let see...
- Add one class file to your website. and implement IHttpHandler interface.
