Can you please explain what you mean by "once I enable Internet Explorer as I had it turned off"?

I always have IE (9b) on my machine and I don't know what turning it on or off means.

Thanks

I am using Chrome 9.0.597.19 Beta and AeroPeek is not working for me. Is there something I have to do to turn it on?

i got mine to work,

Find the shortcut in the start menu or on the desktop, Right Click, properties, then at the end on chrome.exe in the target area put a space and add --enable-aero-peek-tabs. Restart the browser and it should work, sometime it takes a couple of tries. Anyway the whole thing in target area should look like C:\Users\Mitchell\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-aero-peek-tabs

I tried that. Still does not work. After I insert that extra bit, I restart Chrome, and when I look at the target area, the string has reverted back to what it originally was!!!

Edit:

Ok. I got it. The trick is to unpin the current icon on the taskbar and to resend the icon when the changes were made through the Properties.

Thanks so very much.
