its not instances of the program, its firefox's tabs. It displays them in the preview. so if you have 12 tabs open it will show all 12 tabs in the preview

@kookster, No, IT IS instances of a program, NOT firefox tabs. I hope we're all clear on that. I'm just using firefox as an example.

@valtonray, I play online poker and i need to be able to preview all 24 tables at the same time as thumbnails so that i know when i'm sitting out at certain tables, waiting in line, no longer sitting, etc. And scrolling thru 24 tables one by one is time consuming and tedious.

Simple solution for that: Don't play 24 tables. Other than that, hope you figure it out, I personally think it's impossible... Good luck.

I think the registry key is just for the default max number of preview screens. this number is diregarded if the resolution calculation says to change to list after 13. I dont know if any developers here know how to edit the explorer.exe so I don't know if you can change this.

Oh btw...If you are playing 24 tables for Money and making a living doing that then mad props. If you are just playing for fun, then you my friend are an expert at multislacking

Quote: "every time your mouse hovers over a button, explorer makes some calculations based on your resolution, and makes a second value of maximum thumbnails to show (which is 10 on a 1280x1024 resolution). Then it takes the smaller of the two, and if you have more buttons than this value, it shows a list instead."

This calc. might be made to prevent the previews from running off the page and is not programmed to show rows of previews so you cant have 13-wide\2-tall you would just be capped at 13....even if you get it to force show 24 previews, it might center them all on one row and you will still see only 13 of then as those fit on the screen the first 5½ and last 5½ of previews will run of screen

Well this may seem obvious, but Alt+Tab allows me to view as many thumbnailed windows as my heart desires performing the function i was looking for. I also came across a free application called WinExposé which is a windows clone of a Mac OS X feature that allows you to view all your opened windows as thumbnails in one neatly arranged full-screen page.

Never tried that b4, thx. Pretty cool for browsing through a photo album. I'm still learning my way around Windows 7, very different from XP.

I am trying to get my taskbar to store recently opened items but when I right click on the start menu and select properties I see that the check box is greyed out! I have no idea what I did to make it greyed out and more importantly, I have no idea how to get it back so that I can enable it again....

Taskbar Customization Questions
Can anyone help me remove some of the separators from the right side of my Windows 7 taskbar. There is too much space in one area and I think eliminating the multiple separators will bring the icons closer together.
