Understanding Quicklook    
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!
