Taskbar preview thumbnail with seven basic ?

Hi all,

I run Windows 7 on a old laptop, so enable aero is not possible. I want to know if there is a software to enable the thumbnails on the taskbar with aero basic theme.

I've tried Visual tool tips & Visual task tips but both don't works with Windows 7

thanks for your help

No software that will enable certain Aero features, but try enabling Aero.

Doesn't works and i'm not surprised. I don't see how a Intel 855 GME with xp driver from 2003 could manage aero

The answer looks like no, unfortunately. Your thread has had 150 views already, and no one has the answer.

If you can't enable Aero, I don't think it is possible.

You may try Googling for something like "Taskbar thumbnails Windows XP" or something like that.

That is the disadvantage of old hardware; the new software does not support it.
