|MakeMusic have created this feature on Mac OS X, using the platform's QuickLook APIs to provide previews of Finale documents within the Finder, including icons. I've always been surprised that the same feature isn't available for the Windows side.|
Assuming that there is a extensible architecture in Windows for displaying file icons as the document appears and for previewing the contents of a Finale file without opening Finale, then it's surprising that MM haven't done this.
The other feature that seems to be Mac-only is a module for the system's searching and indexing utility, so that you can search your hard drive for all files that are Andante in D major with a Trumpet, whose filename starts with "Moz", or whatever. (Though it is currently broken in 2012 on OS X 10.7.) Again, I'm surprised that MM have gone to the trouble of creating this for Mac, when no similar feature is offered for Windows.
I'd be surprised, but perhaps it's not possible?
