Do you want to disable the preview completely? If you want to do that the do this.

Open Regedit by the use of RUN command or start menu search, then go to


When there right click on the right pane then create a new DWORD called ExtendedUIHoverTime and set the value to 20000 (that's 20 seconds) or value of your wish..

This does not disable the preview pop up but it wil now take 20 seconds to show up.
