One of the best features of Windows is that we can preview files. It helps us to see what a file actually contains. But the sad part is that Windows doesn’t let you preview some kind of files, such as audio and videos. And that is why today I will tell you how to preview audio, video files in Windows 10. A Windows 10 app, Quicklook allows you to instantly preview audio, video and certain other types of files easily. The app runs out of the box and you can see its icon in the system tray.
Quicklook gets invoked by a shortcut key and you can preview almost any kind of files. Especially, if you preview an audio file, then it will give an option to play it in Groove Music. And if you preview a video file, then it will show you an option to open the video file in Movies & TV app. In the preview, it will play the entire audio or video. And you can close the preview instantly by a hotkey.
How to Preview Audio, Video Files in Windows 10?
Quicklook makes it possible to preview audio, video files in Windows 10. After installing the app, just select a file you want to preview and hit the ‘Space’ key. After that, it will show you a pop-up with the preview of the audio or video file in that. The preview of the file will remain there as long as you want. And if you want to close the preview, just press the Esc key.
See above, you will have an idea how the audio, video file preview looks in Windows 10. The preview is very fast by Quicklook and this is kinda helpful if you have a lot of video file with you. You can preview them using the simple app that I have explained in this post.
