Azure Icons: Enable SVG Thumbnail Preview in File Explorer

While creating Azure architectural and concepts drawings, my first step is to gather the most current Azure Icons that I will be using in the diagram(s).

I prefer using SVG format icons/symbols for drawings, because their image quality is maintained no matter how they’re resized or moved. The problem is, having extracted a downloaded a zip file of the latest Azure icons/symbol set, the SVG format of all the icons cannot be previewed as thumbnails in Windows File Explorer. You can only see the name, as in the screen-shot below – I need to be able to see preview/overview thumbnails of all the SVG files – as I can for .PNG files! A thumbnail viewer will save a lot of time choosing the correct set of SVG icons needed for a drawing!
