The taskbar Preview of Minimized Windows
Hi Guys I'm sure many of you would know what I am talking about. In Windows 7 when you minimize a window, it gets down onto the taskbar. But if you HOVER over it, it'll show you a little preview of the content of that particular window. How do I stop that from happening ? Thanks
