Quick Look files from the Trash

Dec 8, 2007 - 2 Comments

Thanks to Quick Look in Leopard, you no longer have to drag files from the Trash to check them out. Simply hit Command-Y while on any file within the trash folder and Quick Look will behave as normal by launching a preview of the file contents. This great tip was found on TUAW (and screenshot was borrowed from them as well, obviously).

    that’s handy. QuickLook is the only thing I notice new in Mac Leopard personally…

    I don’t get what the point of this “tip” is. Pressing the spacebar on a file in the trash works the same as on a file not in the trash, to wit, it opens a quicklook view of it. Why is this a tip? Cmd-Y or spacebar works on any file to quickview, regardless of location.
