Preview pane for icon and list views Desktop
I always thought the Column view was cool, especially because of the preview pane that comes up when you click on image or movie files. I was bummed that this preview was only available in column view, as I thought it would be useful in list and icon views as well.

Well, it turns out that this feature already exists!

When viewing a folder in icon or list view, click on a file and get info (Cmd-I). This brings up the info window. Select Preview from the popup menu in the info window, and volia! Click on different files to see a preview of each one. Neato.

isn't this more effort than selecting the column view? plus you can only have one getinfo window open at a time. its easier just to getinfo if you want time modified shown, or you can have it in column view.

I download a lot of pictures, and it annoyed me that the column view was alphabetically sorted, when I really wanted to review pics sorted by the date. This tip accomplishes that, I can't believe I haven't done this before now.
