Lorenzo Farina

Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate

Hi i have this problem: when i hoover mouse on preview thumbnail the window won't appears on desktop.

I solved in this way:

1 open regedit (key "win + r" and type regedit)
2 navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
3 change value of key "DisablePreviewWindow" from 1 to 0.
4 log off and log in again
5 all done

I try too with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, but some funcion works, but the tool doesn't solve the problem above.
