Windows 7: Way to disable Window Preview when hovering task bar buttons?

Way to disable Window Preview when hovering task bar buttons?

Hi,

is there a way to disable the window preview when hovering the task bar buttons? For example, if I have a task bar group with let's say five Internet Explorer Windows and I hover one of them, Windows generates a preview and shows the content at full desktop size.

The only way I found to disable this is to completely disable Aero.

Thanks
luke

Thanks, however, already tried this before and this really only disabled the small previews and not the full size ones. Looks like it's actually not possible to disable this without disabling Aero at all

right click on computer > advanced system settings > advanced tab > performance settings > uncheck/check 'enable desktop composition'

This will disable/enable preview of windows on the taskbar.

PS. none of the aero peek settings or registry edits work.

Copy this setting to text file, rename with ".reg" extension, add to registry by double clicking on it. Yayyy!

Preview of programs is blank when hovering over the icon of the program.
Try to open few iexplorer instances and then in taskbar properties in the "taskbar button" dropdown select "Combine when taskbar is full" . Now hover over the explorer icon it displays blank preview. Please view attachment for further details.
