Do you like me, miss OSX´s quicklook feature (Click on any file, press space and get instant preview…), when using Windows? I haven´t found any good third party software to mimic this behaviour, so I created my own, using IrfanView and AutoHotKey.
How I did it:
- Download and install IrfanView*.
- Download and install AutoHotKey.
- Copy this AutoHotKey-script to «C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp»
Now you can click on any image-file, press space and get instant preview. if you press space again, the preview close down. Not perfect but close enough for my use.

Make IrfanView look more like OSX quicklook:
Remove IrfanView’s toolbar (alt+shift+T)
Remove IrfanView’s caption (alt+shift+C)
Remove IrfanView’s status bar (alt+shift+S)
