Windows 7: Minimized page buttons

Minimized page buttons

Hello, I have installed Windows 7 Home Premium on my Dell desktop. No matter what browser I use, any web pages that I have minimized to the bottom of the screen will show a mini-version of that page on top of the minimized page button if I bring my mouse pointer too close too it.

I prefer to use buttons rather than tabs to switch between web pages.

But these mini previews are hindering me. On an active page that I want to stay on if I try to click on a desired button on that page and it is too close to the bottom of the screen then I get the mini-picture pop up from a web page that I have minimized to a button. This mini picture of the minimized pages stays up for about 2-3 seconds and blocks what I want to do on my active page.

Is there anyway to turn off this feature? If I have web pages minimized to buttons at the bottom of the screen I don't care to see a small pop up of the minimized screen if my mouse pointer comes close to it. I would really like to turn that feature off, if possible. Thanks.

Glad to help, but guess what. That is a selling feature and you paid for it. Go figure.
