Where is that darn Quick Look button?

Eventually, in the life of every Mac user, that "something" disappears. In the case of Terry, a recent potential Bob LeVitus Consulting customer, it was the loss of the Quick Look Button in the toolbar of each window.

Bob answered this one, using a great new program, Skitch, to take a screen shot and annotate it. These were his instructions:

1. Open any window in the Finder.

2.  Choose View-->>Customize Toolbar.

3. Drag the Quick Look icon onto the toolbar as shown here:



4. When you're done, click Done.

Also, don't forget that you can press the space bar to have a Quick Look at any selected icon in the Finder.

I hope that helps...

(That was easy so no charge.)
