Google isn't showing any good results, and a client has asked for the "preview" feature when you right click on a .docx file inside of SharePoint. I can see the feature on the SharePoint Online version, but not on the on-premise SharePoint 2019 solution.

Does this feature exist? Can it be enabled? If yes, what do I enable?


Yes, this is possible by deploying and configuring Office Online Server.
Details can be read here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeonlineserver/office-online-server

Instructions are for SharePoint 2016 but applies for SharePoint 2019 as well.
