Windows 7: empty rectangles in taskbar preview and no classic view

09 Aug 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 build 7600

all I know for now is that somehow, aero peek does the following: it does a desktop preview and on top of it it shows the actual window of the thumbnail the mouse is over, I just hope we could either get rid of the desktop preview step (window would show on top of other open ones) or just make the frames fully transparent or change the behavior to full desktop show instead of desktop preview.

I know we can disable desktop preview, but I wonder if it is possible to totally prevent the system from doing it at all, not just from the taskbar button

edit: I read a bit more about it, and now I see that the desktop preview feature itself is part of aero peek, it's not separate, it's the desktop preview that uses aero peek, not the other way around

thank you

Anyone ever get empty preview thumbnails?
On taskbar preview thumbnails, usually you get to see the content inside the window. Sometimes, however, and I'm unsure of the situation that causes it, the thumbnail will not be there, but you end up with just a blank box with the program's icon inside. The way to fix this is to make active that...
