Ending Note:

This Quick Look app will definitely give an extremely functional experience right inside your Windows, but as it’s a free app it doesn’t include all the options as Mac’s Quick Look have. Handling large files may seem a challenge, but only SOMETIMES!

Contrarily, just like Apple’s Quick Look it supports all the possible file formats & also offers HiDPI support. We hope more upgradations will be made in the coming months, to make it more practical and handy for users. Or Microsoft could come with its own feature similar to this!
