I have been using MacBook pro-2017 for about a year, in the mean time I have added a couple of quiclook generators (e.g.
QLStephen.qlgenerator) for various services for the Finder.
For quite a few days it was working good, but now, I encountered a strange problem. Nowadays I can not see the contents of any file in the finder, e.g. when I click on a a.txt file it shows no contents, but when pressed Shift key it shows the QuickView of the item.
How to restore the original settings of the Finder?
I tried deleting all the quicklook plugins, but still, the problem is sustained.
cd ~/Library/QuickLook sudo mkdir backup sudo mv *.qlg* backup/ qlmanage -r killall Finder
I tried also deleting all the contents of
QuickLook and restarted the computer. Still it does not work. Maybe I have to reset the Finder settings, but I don't know how?
Note that here the
a.txt is not empty but Finder shows nothing.
How can we make the Finder show the contents of this file?
Update Backed up and deleted the QuickLook folders from the computer.
sudo mv /Library/QuickLook ~/library_quicklook sudo mv ~/Library/QuickLook ~/home_library_quicklook sudo rm -rf com.apple.quicklook.ui.helper.plist sudo rm -rf com.apple.quicklookconfig.plist sudo rm -rf com.apple.QuickLookDaemon.plist qlmanage -r qlmanage -r cache killall Finder
Still does not work.
