    Hi booragal,

    Can you please elaborate a little bit on your scenario and why ability to open Windows files with Mac Preview is a problem? May be there is a solution already.

    Hello Alev,

    I use preview a lot for music, but I have noticed when I am using Windows the Mac preview works for a few songs, then stops all together. So, I have to double click to play a song in the media player which is time consuming.

    So, I installed a native Windows previewer which works as expected, however, when I hit the spacebar to preview, the Window previewer appears, and then the Mac preview appears which becomes redundant as I have to close it down.

    It would be great to be able to switch off the spacebar that enacts the Mac preview in Windows.

    Hopefully that makes sense?
