File managers that need a bit of configuration

Note: Due to the limitation of Windows Sandbox, these managers need an additional tool to work with the Store version of QuickLook. Click here for details.

  • fman (Just specify the path to QuickLook.exe on first use of F3)2.
  • FreeCommander (setup explained here)
  • Total Commander (setup explained here)
  • XYplorer (setup explained here)
  • Tablacus (simply install the QuickLook addon)

1 You may notice that the selected file will change when pressing space. The solution is to turn off Enhanced incremental search in view feature in QTTabBar. See #726 for details.

2 fman uses space for selecting items, so QuickLook does not override it. However, it is possible to set the F3 preview application to QuickLook. Notes here.
