How can i remove / hide the "quick view / quick preview" area from finder (see markup attached) ?

Im running Big Sur, but I think Ive seen this area in previous versions of MacOS / OSX also.

You can use Shift+Cmd+P shortcut for that. It's in the View drop-down menu as well, as "Show preview" or something like that (I use macOS in PT-BR, so not sure about EN-US).
