Default [Q] APK Viewer for Windows/Linux (File Explorer with icon)

i have search the web/forum for a windows app that running on the PC you can see at least the apk icon, I have several apks on my PC but when Iím looking for an apk, is hard to remember the name or when trying a new apk is not enough just looking for the name, I may be more visual guy that if I see a nice icon I will try it jajajja
I just found this thread but look die..

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=577735

is there some application or dev that can easily do an apk viewer, just looking inside the APK folder on the /res/drawable/ the apk icon shows, but how to make it shows at the apk compressed fileÖ

thanks

i'm looking for...

i just tried a Droid Explorer but i can not found a way to explore on the Actual PC. then i have try an other Windows program called Icon viewer but than only works on a dll and exe files, i try changing the extension but didn't work...

the only way that i think it should other that writing a windows applications is to use the emulator with a Virtual Device, then run a File Explorer APK and look in to it. i did but i try to find where is the SD Content in to the PC and i think i found it in to the /User/.android/avd but no lucky putting the apk file on it, i will check it later but i think that one way to do it, i need to read more about the content storage when using the emulator..

Maybe someone could make an addon for Total Commander. Should be very possible to have it extract and use the icon inside the APK.

It already has addons for Blizzard MPQ files, C64 emulator files and Amiga emulator files. Seems very possible that it could get an addon to show this icon as well. I use it to browse APKs already.

i was checking File Expert and just notice you can share or see the SD card content from your PC, but also notice, the APK's you can see how the actual icon for the app looks like...

is there someone could make a modification to this that we will be able to see our Hard drive Apps also?? or could be also good to have a chrome or firefox extension that allow us so see the icon of the app, i'm not expert on this...


regards
