Windows 7: Taskbar (-thumbnail) Preview

Taskbar (-thumbnail) Preview

Im just wondering if anyone knows of a way to make the taskbar preview work by only mousing over the tab on the taskbar, so you dont have to mouse over the thumbnail. I made the thumbnail take forever to appear cause it was anoying me for specific reasons. I want it to be like in this picture I made:

If anyone has an Idea please let me know, as far as I can tell from searching all over the internet is that no one has done this yet. I think most people are content with the combined tabs, I myself am not.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Kookster and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but I do not believe that it is possible to have taskbar live thumbnail previews done that way instead of from the thumbnail.

You can change the delay time for it tp speed it up though.
