In your Mac’s Finder, select any item and press Command-I to see all sorts of information on it (including file size and creation date) and change what program it opens with by default.
If you select multiple items by holding down the Command key as you click on them, you can then press Control-Command-I to get combined info for everything you’ve chosen.
Finally, if you use the Option-Command-I shortcut instead, you’ll see a dynamic Inspector window, which will update as you click on different items.

Note that the Get Info window for QuarkXPress documents shows a preview of the first page, and lists all the Layout names in the project, as well as all the Style Sheets used!
