Let’s learn about
quicklook, one of the new features in Leopard. It’s really very
cool and so easy! Let’s open up a window in the finder. Now up
at the top of any finder window you will see these icons. They allow
you to switch the view of the contents of the window. For example, right
now I’m in list view. There is icon view
and column view.
Now, the last view is the quicklook view. When I click on it I get this
really cool animated and large view of my files. This allows me to visually
quickly find what I am looking for.
Once I’m in quickview, I use this bar to scroll through my files.
The faster I scroll the faster they go and visa versa. If I make my window
larger, the images also get larger. Now I’m scrolling through these
folders and let’s say I want to look inside one, I just double
click it and now I’m scrolling through that folder. This is a wonderful
tool when you are looking for a file or document and you can’t
remember the name or the exact contents of the file. I encourage to try
using the quicklook view and
incorporate it into your daily computer use!
