Windows 7: Taskbar Open Webpages

Taskbar Open Webpages

On the taskbar between the quick launch icons and the notification area icons, I used to see with Vista webpages that I had open. I cannot seem to find how to customize the taskbar in Windows Mail to show these. Thanks.

Go to search. Type explorer. When you see Internet Explorer, right click and pin to task bar.

OK, I had done this. What I discovered was that when I hover over the IE icon I see a list of open webpages. These used to appear as separate items on the taskbar in Vista just the right of the quick launch icons. I don't mind having to hover over the icon, it's just different. Thanks.

Go to help and support by start button. Type aero peek preview open window, and watch the movie. To be honest it is short dont bring any popcorn, a soda may be nice. Good luck

Hi Richard
I think my brain has gone to sleep today but I cannot find a video. I'm sitting here with a bag of chips and a Pepsi but all in vain

So sorry, had a very short run, could not compete with Avatar.

But you may want to go here:

Help and support by search>aero peek preview>preview open window>go to website to view video.

Windows 7 edition has movie, do not know about Vista.

After you see the video, you may agree the chips was overdoing it a bit.

Preview an open window on the desktop using Peek

I can help you view the movie, but do not shoot the messenger.
