Just bought a new laptop and with it a move from Win 10 to Win 11. My question involves File Explorer and View options. In Win 10, when I had multiple file icons showing, I could select View and when I hovered the mouse pointer over a selection it would show a preview of how that selection would look. For instance, if I had Large Icons selected, I could click View and scroll over Details and I could see the details of all files without selecting it. This is useful when I compare dates across multiple files (without selecting and then selecting back). In Win 11 I can’t figure out how to make the hover preview work. Is this feature available in Win 11?
