    This one caught me out for a while!

    In Tiger I would drag one or two application alias' to the Finder Toolbar.

    When I upgraded to Leopard I found they were still in place but I was missing Quick Look.

    Basically the Quick Look icon didn't install because it did not have the room. Easily fixed then by simply removing the App alias' and then right-click on the toolbar - choose 'customize toolbar' and then drag the default set to the toolbar.

    There is then still room to drag one or two Apps back up there.

    I had the same problem, but I didn't have any app aliases (or any customization at all) in the toolbar--I had merely upgraded from Tiger. It seems as if the new toolbar (including Quicklook) was not installed during the upgrade. I fixed it in the same way you've outlined.

    Same problem here. Tried your solution....worked like a charm. Thanks.

    It saves the settings from Tiger, and as there is no quick look thingy in Tiger there's no such button in your settings.

    Quite a bit of bad thinking from apples side.

    I'm not sure why a person would want to have the Quick Look button there in the first place. Much faster, IMO, to simply thwack the space bar to Quick Look the item.
