Windows 7: taskbar thumbnail real time preview


04 Jun 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit RC Build 7100
 
 
taskbar thumbnail real time preview

i love the taskbar thumbnail preview but i have one problem.
It's not real time, I will explain.

I run What's up Gold on my windows 7 computer.
I normally have it minimized so i can work on other things.
Now if i want to check to see if all my server are up and running
i will hover over my WUG icon in the taskbar and the preview window comes up. If i then hover over the little preview window then i get a full screen
view of WUG. One problem It's stuck in time. meaning what i am looking at in the preview and even the full screen preview is not what the program is
displaying right at this moment. What it is showing me is what was going on in WUG the last time it was opened fully and then minimized. So if i minimized it at 8:30am and it's now 4:00pm what i am seeing in the preview is from 8:30am. If i click on the preview and open WUG again it displays what is going on in real time.

I will include some screen shots.

The only thing i can think of is that i am running dual screens.

You have to occasionally reopen it to get a new preview. I noticed that sometimes when i am download things and i start doing other things, the preview will say like 85% downloaded, but when i go to the actual window it is done. Not sure how to make it be real time all the time, or why it even stops sometimes.

Yes, this is a pet peeve of mine, I wish they would fix it already, or make it work like I think it should. You only get a live preview if the application is maximized, if it's running and minimized to the taskbar, it won't be a live preview.

I am not sure where exactly to go to send them a bug report, and I think that is what mad was asking as well.
