Looking for Quick Look
Q. I recently upgraded to Leopard and I wanted to use â€œQuick Lookâ€ but it is not coming in the Finder. How can I load it in the toolbar?
A. There is an unfortunate side affect to upgrading your Mac from either Panther or Tiger and that is the new features of the Finder donâ€™t appear as advertised. The reason is that your preferences are preserved when you choose â€œArchive and Installâ€ when installing Leopard over your Tiger installed Mac.
â€œQuick Lookâ€ and the new â€œCover Flowâ€ features normally appear in the toolbar at the top of the new Finder Windows. Quick Look allows you to read a text file, or view an image or even play a movie without having the open the application that created it. Cover Flow allows you to â€œflipâ€ through your files and quickly preview them.
The upgrade installer preserves your preferences and doesnâ€™t replace the toolbar items. To correct that or customize the toolbar choose â€œCustomize Toolbarâ€ from the â€œView â€œ menu while you have Finder window open. To get the standard Leopard settings choose â€œdrag the default set into the toolbarâ€. You could also add any other items from the dialog box that you would like.
