    You should read this:

    Mouse Hover Time - Change


    Tweak Aero Peek Delay Time In Windows 7 With Desktop Peek Tweak

    That will speed up the desktop peek. This one:

    will speed up the thumbnail peek.

    For those who don't want to follow the second link:

    1. Click on the Start Button and type in regedit and hit Enter.
    2. Navigate through HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse.
    3. Right click on MouseHoverTime and select Modify.
    4. Set the new value. The default value is 400 milliseconds.
    5. Once changed, click OK and restart your computer.
    I set mine to 100, logged off and back on, and the thumbnails now appear nearly immediately.
