In OS X, you can select a file and press Space for a quick preview of it, just like how you can preview app window in Windows 10. Previewing a file is something that you can’t do natively in Windows 10. While Microsoft appears to be not interested in such a feature, for the time being, there’s a free app available in the Microsoft Store that gives you the same feature.

One of the excellent features on Macs is the ability to preview the files such as photos and videos. You can easily get it on your Windows 10 PC using Quicklook app, which provides a similar functionality.

Seer is indeed a better solution than Quicklook, but the latter is available for free on the Microsoft Store, and on the other hand, Seer is available on a website.

Quicklook has an elegant design and it also works with the UWP apps, such as Microsoft Photos and MS Paint. It’s one of the best ways to quickly preview files on Windows 10.

Quicklook for Windows 10

If you select a photo and press spacebar, you can see a quick preview of the photo without having to open the photos app. There’s also an option to open the previewed photo in the official Photos app.

It’s a third party app but surprisingly it worked well enough in Windows 10 when I tried it out. The animation is indeed slow, and you can expect some bugs here and there. Quicklook is an experimental app but still, it works really well with common files such as photos.

If you preview a PDF file, it will let you open Microsoft Edge as well. It’s worth noting that the app support tons of different file types. You can download it from the Microsoft Store.

If you’re looking for a better solution, you might want to try Seer, a Win32 app, that works just like Quicklook but it has the ability to copy photos or frames of videos to your computer’s clipboard.

The main design difference is how previews appear on your screen.

Inspired by Mac, Seer is a powerful and innovative solution that delivers a better experience on Windows 10. You can download it from here.
