Differences Between Distributions

  • The .msi installer version is most recommended (and also available via Chocolatey). It contains the full features of QuickLook, including previewing selected files in the Open- and Save-File Dialogs.

  • The .zip package is for those who want a clean and simple experience. However, one needs to unlock the .zip file manually before extraction, otherwise QuickLook will crash.

  • Microsoft Store package is for those who do not want to be bothered by manual upgrades. However, this version is being upgraded slower than other two (1 to 3 working days) and does not preview selected files in the Open- and Save-File Dialogs.

  • The nightly builds contain the latest features, enhancements and bugfixes. These builds might not be stable. It usually takes several weeks before a nightly build is being published to stable channels.
