Somehow, I don't know how or when, I deleted preview.app. Everything else is fine. What's the easiest way to get it back?

  • Perhaps it's still in the Trash? It may be in root's trash /.Trashes, not in yours, though. – lhf Jul 9 '13 at 22:42
  • Copy it from a backup or another Mac.
  • Download an OS X installer from App Store, and use Pacifist to copy the application bundle.

  • Wait until 10.9 is released.

  • Download an OS X installer from App Store and install it on a virtual machine with VMware Fusion, Parallels Desktop, or VirtualBox.
  • Do an upgrade install of OS X from the recovery partition.
  • Thanks. I used your suggestion #2 which worked beautifully. I had never tried using Pacifist! – pitosalas Jul 10 '13 at 1:49
