Windows 7: Taskbar Thumbnails Tuner

14 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Taskbar Thumbnails Tuner

Taskbar Thumbnails Tuner is a new brother of my Alt+Tab Tuner software

This portable free application for Windows 7 and Windows 8 allows you:
  • Adjust thumbnails size
  • Adjust the number of thumbnails for groupped application windows.
  • Adjust horizontal spacing between the thumbnails
  • Adjust vertical spacing between the thumbnails
  • Adjust thumbnail's caption position
  • Adjust top margin
  • Adjust bottom margin
  • Adjust left margin
  • Adjust right margin
  • Completely disable taskbar's thumbnails.

I have reject some settings because they are useless. If you interesting you can see genesis of the user interface here.

I have prepared demo video of Taskbar Thumbnails Tuner.

There are two versions available - first is for Windows 7 and second is for Windows 8. They are similar but one of them was compiled with .NET 4.5 to match Windows 8.

To roll back any changes you made use "Defaults" button. It restores all settings to their defaults. Note what every time you click "apply" or "defaults" button the Windows Explorer will be restarted.

Problem with Taskbar Thumbnails
Usually the taskbar thumbnails appear just a second after I hover the mouse on it. But now it stuck somehow. The thumbnails do not appear after I hover on it, nothing happens. To make it appears, I have to switch to one or two more windows and then hover back one the taskbar. I really don't think...
any way to make taskbar thumbnails appear faster?
This may be a stupid question, but is there any way to make the taskbar thumbnails appear faster? There's a 1-2 second delay which I find very annoying when I want to open a specific window of a program (and while I know I can click, I also find that very annoying... I guess I'm picky).
