Windows 7: How to I remove BOTH Taskbar Thumbnails Previews Mode AND List Mope?

How to remove BOTH Taskbar Thumbnails Previews Mode AND List Mode(s)?


How to I remove BOTH the Taskbar Thumbnails Previews Mode AND the Taskbar Thumbnails List Mode?

I find it very irritating that when/if my mouse accidentally strays over the Taskbar, that temporary previews of what is open immediately 'popup'. Worse the popups are so small that you cant read anything. I tried making getting rid of the popups but you are forced to put up with a list of things stacked vertically on top of each other (which I dont have time nor inclination to read).

So then I tried making the popups much larger using this (using option 2 where I edit the registry directly):
Taskbar Thumbnail Previews - Change Size
...But the individual windows shrink when you have multiple windows of the same application open, so again I cant read the bl**dy things. Aaarrrggghhh!

So how to I stop ALL popups of any sort?
(OR just give me really, REALLY large popups, all of which I can read!)

With thanks
