    If you just want to know where the Quick Look of a document is located, you can press Option + Command and at the bottom of Quick Look it will say where the item is stored on your computer.

      Thanks a million. I’ve wished this was possible for so long, and it was right under my nose. Wonderful.

      Thanks a million. I always wanted to know how to find the location of a file easily. i always used to open the file and use the “get info” feature.

    Didn’t know about the calculator ability in Spotlight, either. That’s great! Thanks a million, or should I say 1,000,000 :)
