This application enables previewing of files and folders in Windows in macOS style

Seer application

There are many differences that we can find between Windows and MacOS, but one of the features that is missing in the operating system of Microsoft is the ability to preview files and folders without the need to go to the file properties, open it with some program or browse inside the folders.

Whether you are one of those who have recently used macOS as if you have always been a Windows user and have never been able to count on this feature, we are going to show a tool that will bring us this useful feature to our Windows system so that we can enjoy it in the purest macOS style. The software in question is called Seer and is an application that has a totally free version so that we can use it in our PC if we have the Microsoft operating system.

Add preview of macOS files and folders in Windows

To do this, we simply have to go to their website, download the free version and proceed with their installation on the computer. Once installed, we will be able to use it without any problem. To verify that it works correctly, we can open a windows file explorer window, select any file and press the space key.

Automatically, we will see how a window appears showing the full name of the selected file, its size, location, file type, creation date, modification and last access, etc. If the selected file also allows a preview of the same, for example if it is a photo or video, then we will see how by clicking on the space on our keyboard, a preview of the image will be displayed in large or we can see how it starts.

From this preview, you can also open the file with the default program depending on the type, open a new Windows Explorer window with the location of the file, rotate or zoom if it is an image or close the view itself.

If instead of selecting a file, click on a folder and press the space again, then it will automatically display a preview of files and folders it contains. From there, we can continue browsing the different folders, opening files, showing or hiding the details of the folders or files, opening a specific location in a new windows file explorer window, etc.
