Recently there has been some discussion over at the eCraft_Crafters Yahoo Group about using a program to view your SVG files. I am going to share with you the program that I use. To specify, I am using Windows 7 64 bit Dell laptop. The program that I use is called Irfan View and it is a free program. I don't know if it works on all operating systems, but usually if it works on Windows 7, it will work on any Windows system.
Once you have installed the program, you will get this icon on your desktop. EDIT: You need to install the program AND the plug ins.
Double-click on that icon, and it will open up to look similar to Windows Explorer. From there you go to the folder where you store your SVG files, and this is what you should see.
Hope that this helps you out!
