The Microsoft Camera Codec Pack enables the viewing of a variety of device-specific file formats in Window Live Photo Gallery as well as other software that is based in Windows Imaging Codecs (WIC). Installing this package will allow supported RAW camera files to be viewable in Windows Explorer.

Windows 10 RAW file codec pack Hi all. I have just bought a new camera, a Panasonic G80, (same as G85 in America) but found the Explorer cannot display the RAW file thumbnails or view the files, I have no issues with the files produced by my older Panasonic cameras, so guess I need a new RAW codec. ...

The codecs available in the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack are built-in to Windows 10, but to add a few propriety formats not supported by Windows, one still needs a codec. You may want to go through Photo viewer for Windows 10 for more information regarding the same. The Photos app doesn’t support RAW

Microsoft isn't responsible for that codec. You can get the codec with their software like Digital Photo Pro. There are other options like FastStone Image viewer and others. Of course if you want to produce images from the RAW files you will need a lossless editor like OnOne, CaptureOne, of Lightroom.

I can't open Canon CR2 raw image files with my Win 8.1 PC. I use Lightroom, PhotoshopCC, Canon Photo Professional and can't find a compatible Camera Codec for Windows 8.1. There must be a way. Else
