There are several possibilities, and which one suits you depends on your work 
pattern.  As well as that you can elect to have some of the properties 
displayed below the file icon.  This can be set to be global, or just for one 
directory.  My own preference is for the Info Panel, which sits on the right.  
Hovering over any file shows a preview, often big enough to read, and as much 
metadata as it knows about the file.  To get the best out of that you need 
strigi running.
