How to Enable or Disable Internet Explorer Individual Tabbed Browsing Taskbar Preview Windows

information   Information
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the individual taskbar preview windows in IE8, IE9, and IE10 when using tabbed browsing in Windows 7 and Windows 8.

If enabled, each tab used will have it's own individual preview window when you hover over the IE icon on the taskbar. If disabled, only one preview window will show on the taskbar when you hover over the IE icon, no matter how many tabs you are using.

Thanks. I made it because someone asked how to do it in a post. I was a little surprised it wasn't already made long ago.
