Are you tired of having dozens of windows and tabs open, making a mess of your browser? Having to switch back and forth between files or tabs can be annoying, especially if you only need to take a quick peek for reference. Now, with OS X Yosemite, you can avoid cluttering your screen and be more organized than ever.
The Quick Look feature in OS X Yosemite allows you to view the contents of a file or link in a floating window, letting you get the information you need quickly and conveniently. You no longer have to open and close files or links, or open another application, to see the content.
To use Quick Look in your Finder window or desktop, simply select one or more items and hit the space bar. A preview window will appear, giving you a view of the file's contents without opening up a new page or application. You can also select several files to preview, and look through them all using the arrow keys. Once you find the information you need, simply hit the space bar again to close the window.
You can also use Quick Look to preview links in Safari, without having to open and close multiple tabs. You can use a three-finger tap on the link, and then view the page, picture or video in the Quick Look window. However, to use the three-finger method, be sure that you have "Look up" enabled in your Trackpad preferences. You can make sure its enabled by opening System Preferences, selecting Trackpad and reviewing the options.
