Windows 7: Taskbar Thumbnail - Are You Kidding Me?

07 May 2009   #11

Main OS: Windows 7 64 bit, Secondary: Vista 32 bit
 
 

well i went into Control Panel, Performance Information and Tools, then Adjust Visual Effects. I then disabled all effects and i dont get that pop up preview

It must be one of those effects, try them out...

Disabling all the visual themes is the same as using the Basic theme, it disables the Aero effect thus rendering the taskbar thumbnails inactive. Taskbar thumbnails cannot be disabled while using any Aero effect.

Hello DaRonRon,

Disabling all of those options will basically have you running in the Windows Classic theme. The specific visual effect would be the Enable desktop composition option.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Why? What's so onerous about the preview?

Yea you can. If you set it to a really high number you have to click on the taskbar item to bring up the multiple windows instead of hovering.

Isn't that what you want, since you still want to us multiple windows but not have the previews show up at first?

And what is it about the preview that is annoying you most, I don't get it one iota.

well, you can disable the preview when you hover over the taskbar button, but i really dont like the preview if i have to select between two windows of the same type.

its not horrible, its just that i liked the old list type better.

/edit by now i've got used to the new taskbar thumbnail, its not that bad after all.
i disabled the preview, and navigating thru different tabs is alright.
