Did you try both hexadecimal, and decimal ZEROs? I wondered if that would work, but I am happy with the thumbnail appearing for just one window. Even happier (elated might be a better word) that there is a way to show the open windows as a list now, all the time! [I have a touchpad mouse, so it was hard to "roll" perfectly horizontal to get to the open window thumbnails on the far side of the screen.]

I'm fairly new, so I do not know if the +Rep means you gave me rep, but if you did, thanks a lot!

Take good care,

Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Your welcome. Yes that's what it means. I'll play a bit, but I don't mind the thumb for only one either. And I agree that using the thumbs is a bit of a pain with a touchpad.
