Zoom can bring more characters into the preview. But even zoom to 200%
does not help much, since still only a small part of the file is
shown. I usually identify a text file from it's name, not it's
preview. So I think it's a feature not worth for a standalone option
on the Preview tab. However, identifying a picture or video from its
thumbnail is very convenient. So I suggest make picture and video
preview a standalone option instead. This will make File Preview more
