Hello.

In the small time I used the upgrade (6801 to 6936) I could not access disk management either. Upgrade = no joy....

Mitch,

My guess is that it has to be with the upgrade instead of clean install. It's the only thing that you did different than the rest of us.

Ted,

I could not access Disk Management in 6936 either - and that's with a fresh install, the build seemed pretty flaky all round, am going to see if i can run Blue badge 3 on my 32 bit 6810 and if it works OK will remove 6936 and use the space for 6801 x64 otherwise will re-install 6956 which was working fine

I had the very same problem. I had all the right things enabled. I did a lot of scouring and found under Advanced settings, Performance I had made a change. Here's a pic. Animate controls and elements inside windows nees to be checked for Peek to work.

hi i had same prob they (chrome) took this option away on the last dev update!! bill2 sent me this










1. Locate your Chrome or Chromium shortcut. There should be one on your desktop and one in your start menu - either one will work.

2. Right Click the shortcut and choose properties.

3. Find the target box (it will be highlighted when the properties screen appears).

4. Left click at the end of the line (after chrome.exe).

5. Press space.

6. Add your command line switch. --enable-aero-peek-tabs

The result looks like this:

C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-aero-peek-tabs
Instead of Bill, it will be your username of course.
