As SageThimbs is a Windows Explorer context menu extension, there is no an executable file that you should launch to bring it up. To use it, just open any folder with image files in Windows Explorer, and then right-click a file you want to preview. You´ll see the thumbnail immediately in the context menu.

"One Click Too Many...Locks Up"

Pros:  Installs fine.

Cons:  Locks up my File Manager. One click too many.

Other Thoughts:  This is not a replacement for the old and great PicaView program if that's what you're looking for. In PicaView all you needed to do was right click on any graphic file and everything was right there. In this one, you must right click then click again on their Sage menu to get your options (two clicks for every file). This slows down user time if you wanted to quickly check out multiple unknown files. PicaView allowed you, by only one click, to very quickly go from one file to another to another to another. Sage needs to take out that unnecessary menu within the context menu to make this desirable. Redundant.
Also, it doesn't work very well with certain File Managers. Freezes every time.
