Windows 7: Aero Peek not working

02 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7
Fix to Aero Peek

Go into Performance Options and make sure "Save taskbar thumbnail previews" is checked. If you were playing with the settings and then set them back to"Let Windows choose..." it will not check this one by default. Once this is checked, your Aero peek will work.

I have a different resolution and it is only if you have Lenovo Power Manager installed:

Open the Lenovo Power Battery Manager > Click the "Battery" tab > Battery Maintenance > Then change the radio dialog option to "Always fully charge"

To me it seems very unrelated but it worked for me. I tried to leave it set to "Optimize for Battery Health" and unchecking "Show Power Manager Gauge in task bar" but that didn't work.
