Windows 7: Getting rid of Aero Peek in Windows 7

18 Feb 2013   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
 
 

Gone through the whole list to stop Aero Peak working but will reiterate what I said before,the little bugger refuses to shift even after rebooting after removing it from various lists.It was suggested that I do a reinstall to get rid but I think that could be akin to using a sledgehammer to crack a nut so as I have said,will now leave it in place and ignore the little sod.

Den,

Could you clarify if you are wanting to remove the "Aero Peek" button, or that "Aero Peek" still works when you hover over the button?

I know you have abandoned trying to remove Aero Peek, so I hope you don't take offense at my post.

I've seen a few occasions where a setting change does not stick for a Standard account.
Temporarily changing a Standard account to an Admin account, making the setting change, and then changing the account back to Standard fixed the issue.

I don't know why this might happen...maybe some corruption in the Account profile or a permissions setting somewhere?
Creating a new account and testing if the setting change sticks is something else that could be tried.

I don't know if a Startup Repair or Repair Install might help with this issue.
Maybe you have other issues beyond this that you haven't seen yet???
I'm just guessing here...but knowing the cause/solution could help others searching for this issue.

hth,
David

Is it possible what we call Aero Peek you are calling something else Aero Peek? I'm just going to guess what you are trying to turn off is not Aero Peek. That would explain the reason why nothing is working. Aero Peek causes the selected Windows either via the Task Switch (Alt + TAB), or by hovering over the application's thumbnail in the task bar to show up in the foreground while hiding all other windows. That is all Aero Peek does. I can only assume what you want to turn off is something different, because all of these options you have done would have turned it off.

Maybe a screenshot of the item you want to disable would help us point you in the right direction.

Like Brink asked, you have to CLARIFY your problem. Do you want to TURN AERO PEEK off or do you want to REMOVE it.

This is a simple question which you have yet to answer.


You can not remove it, nor should you try.

Unchecking the box simply turns it off. IF IT IS NOT doing this then tell us EXACTLY that.
