I apologize in advance if my thread is a duplicate of another thread. My problem is difficult to describe, so I could not find anything through the forum search or Google.
I'll begin by stating what I'm not looking for:
- I'm not looking for how to increase the delay or the duration of the taskbar thumbnail previews.
- I'm not looking for how to disable taskbar thumbnail previews.
Here is what I am looking for. If you open up two Windows Explorer windows, by default Windows groups them on the taskbar. If you want to switch between the two, you can click the Explorer ("folder") icon, and out will pop up your two Explorer windows, in miniature thumbnails.
What I dislike is that if you hover your mouse over one of the taskbar thumbnails, all other windows fade out
except for the one you are hovering over. It is just like Aero Peek, except for taskbar thumbnails. But in my case, even if I don't hover
over the thumbnails and click
instead, the delay is too short
so that I still get that annoying Aero Peek. That is, even if I know which window I want and click on it, I can't click fast enough to prevent everything else from fading out. It's really annoying, because I already know which window I want so there really isn't any point to fade out and then fade back in the same instant.
This happens with any window open on the taskbar. Is there any way to either
- turn off Aero Peek for the taskbar thumbnails, or
- increase the duration that you have to hover your mouse in order to activate Aero Peek for the taskbar thumbnails?
I've tried turning off Aero Peek, and that didn't work. I've also tried using a program to increase the delay of taskbar thumbnail display, but that did not change the delay of that darn fade to desktop.
