    I am really liking QuickView-ing.. couldn't preview .css but oh well. But my question is, does anyone know if there is a keyboard shortcut to go into fullscreen mode?

    no, i would like this too but you have to click the fullscreen button on the quick LOOK ;) window. you could always make the quick look window a bit bigger as it retains its size.

    This is a shame. Can't even add it in Keyboard preferences

    Try again. It's just worked for me with an mp3, a jpg, a pdf and a movie.

    Isn't the Option key the Apple key? If so, that keyboard shortcut normally just brings Spotlight up.

    I press the Option/Alt key first, then the spacebar, obviously with a file selected in any view.

    No problem, it seems as if there is inconsistencies with the behavior.

    Okay guys, half an apology coming up. Seems it only works in smart folders (which is odd).

    Select All Images smart folder - when you hold down the option key, the QuickLook button in the toolbar actually changes into a play button - now press the spacebar.

    Please someone tell me it works for them ;)

    This works for me, also note that the cmd+alt+y works in smart folders as well.

    old thread - i just found this useful full screenshortcut but the moving left/right doesn't work to view the next file.

    EDIT: you have to select them all (cmd + A) first and then you get a cool thumbnail view. Shame there is the extra step but still a cool feature.

    HOpe this tip helps more. Case closed.
