I dont have it in front of me, but it should be aero-peek

right click on My Computer and go to Properties
go to the tab Advanced
Click on Settings in the Performance Section
there should be a list of checkboxes, Uncheck the one for Aero-Peek

Do you mean this one ringed?



Sorry if I am missing the point but why do you want to disable it? If you don't use it why not just ignore it?

Hello Raj,

Sorry, but you can only turn the "Desktop Preview" (Aero Peek) button on or off. It cannot be removed from the taskbar.
