Quick Look – OSX: Tip of the Day
Use ‘Quick Look‘ to view the contents of a file without opening the file with its associated application. This preview feature is especially useful with multimedia files (images, videos, music). From the Finder application find a file you would like to preview. In this example a video file (m4v) called Terminator.m4v.
Do one of the following…
1) Press the Spacebar on your keyboard.
2) Click the Quick Look icon ||||
3) Right/control click over the file and select Quick Look ” “
The following is the result with a video file (m4v). You can freely navigate the folder/directory with arrow keys to see other quick views.
