Let's say that I'm viewing files as icons in Finder. I want to be able to QuickLook through all the files in a directory, but using the left and right arrows in QuickLook will only let me navigate a "row" of files. I could switch to list view and then use the up and down arrows; but is there another approach I could use within icon view?

As simple as that: Use (Tab)!

To go backwards, use (Shift-Tab).
