Well, it's a full year since I got my 6D MkII, and this still doesn't seem to be resolved, except to purchase a third-party solution. I've removed the "Solution" tag, as I now agree that "no solution" is no solution.
I've tried making various programs the "default" (including DPP4) for opening .CR2 files, and all I get is a generic program icon instead of a thumbnail image, and the preview pane is still blank..
I see similar discussions online about the 5D Mk IV. It's a shame that there appears to be no effort made to provide a codec to enable this basic functionality,

It doesn't look like a proper answer was ever provided here, but there is a solution for Windows 10 users available. Microsoft has an official "Raw Image Extension" available in the Windows Store for users working with Raw files.. You can download that using this link -https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NCTDW2W1BH8
Hope this helps everyone!

I came across that a couple of days ago. It seems that, for now, it is in BETA and only those in the Windows Insider Program can install it. (Requires a special version of Windows)
However, it does appear that this will be part of the next major Windows update. It was being referred to as the April 2019 Update, but now being referred to as the May 2019 Update.
Here's a reference I found in some of the info on the Windows update:
Either way, we should all be able to get this soon.

Yes.. I should have specified that it was stll in Beta. I am actually a MS employee so I do run the Windows 10 Insider builds from the Windows Insider program. I can validate, however, that I have this installed on my device and I am able to see all of the RAW files(CR2 from my 6D Mark II in file explorer without issue. Happy days are ahead!

I can see all of the RAW data just fine on my Windows 10 PC.. and when everyone takes the update that is coming this month, they will be able to do the same. Thus.. Happy Days ahead for the Windows 10 users that were asking for this feature.
