Windows 7: The taskbar Preview of Minimized Windows

The taskbar Preview of Minimized Windows

Hi Guys

I'm sure many of you would know what I am talking about. In Windows 7 when you minimize a window, it gets down onto the taskbar. But if you HOVER over it, it'll show you a little preview of the content of that particular window.

How do I stop that from happening ?

Thanks

Hello Ciwan,

These would be the taskbar thumbnail previews. You can use this to disable them.

Taskbar Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
