Windows 7: Taskbar Jump List disappears before I can c

Taskbar Jump List disappears before I can c

When I right-click on task bar items, the Jump List appears and stays open. But as soon as I move my cursor above the task bar it immediately fades away, and disappears.
The same happens with the notification area icons. When I click the /\ symbol, the menu pops up, but I cant move the cursor up there fast enough to catch it before it fades and disappears.
I think installing some app may have tweaked a setting to cause this, but I can't figure out what.
Would there be a registry setting to fix this? Or perhaps some other solution?
Thanks for the help,
Ken C.

Ha! Already answered my question.... Here's the solution from a friend on experts exchange...

  • Control Panel
  • Ease Of Access Center
  • Make the Mouse Easier to Use
  • Make it Easier to Manage Windows
  • Unselect "Activate a Window by Hovering Over it".

Somehow the "Activate a Window by Hovering Over it" option had been checked. I guess when the cursor floats up to the jump list, it briefly hovers over a few pixels of the desktop or open app, and activates that, closing the jump list.

creasman00,

You rock! This was bugging me to no end for weeks! I couldn't find an answer the few times I quickly searched because of the obsucre nature of the issue, but finally remembered they're called "jumplists" and found your thread. Thanks for this!

When you hover your mouse over the itunes taskbar icon, you will see basic controls (play, pause, next) just like for WMP 12. There are also more Jump List controls when the iTunes icon is right-clicked. http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/lifehacker/2009/09/itunes_windows7_2.jpg Source
