Thumbnail preview disappear too fast in the task bar and Alt + Tab

Hello everyone,

I have recently reinstalled my laptop with a windows 7 home version.
When i put my mouse on the different icons in the taskbar to check the windows opened it disapear very very fast and even sometimes when i'm fast enough to click on a thumbnail to change window, it's not taking that click.

I also have the same issue with the Alt+Tab feature, after 3 tabs everything disappear.

I have done some researches :
Editing the RegistryKey : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\ThumbnailLivePreviewHoverTime
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AltTab

Nothing changed , i have no idea if it can helps but i have a DELL xps 15z.

Best regards,
Clément

1. shut down the laptop
2. remove the power supply and the battery
3. press and hold the power button 2-3 times and keep it pressed for 1-2 seconds --- obviously the laptop will not start!
4. plug in the battery and the power supply, start the laptop and check if the problem is gone

Hello Cyanna,

I already saw that solution on internet, the problem is that i can't remove the battery from the laptop like this...

You can unplug the power pack and remove the main battery, but not the CMOS battery then press and hold the power button as Cyanna described above. That is what the tips say to do and for some strange reason it has fixed this problem in some cases.

Try it, nothing to lose.

It is a bit of a hassle to remove the battery on that laptop but it can be done.
What exact model Dell do you have? There should be something more after the xps 15z

Yow, you're right, much more work than a normal laptop.

Good Youtube video here though: How-To-Tutorial: Dell XPS 15z (L511z) Battery Replacement - YouTube

Doesn't look hard, just takes a few minutes.

Jeez, they could have just as easily made a removable cover over the battery.

Unfortunately i can't do that as i replaced my hard drive disk 1 month ago and i destroyed one of the screw ...

There is no other solution to that ? Maybe empty the battery then try your process ?

What do you think ?

Why can't you do it? Does the hard drive screw hold the battery in?

unfortunately I know something of ruined screws: destroyed the X didn't you?
Emptying the battery will not work. Let me think for a while if I can come up with any other options......
