Did you read this line?

"To re-enable in Chromium, just append --enable-aero-peek-tabs to your shortcut's target field."

  1. Locate your Chrome or Chromium shortcut. There should be one on your desktop and one in your start menu - either one will work.
  2. Right Click the shortcut and choose properties.
  3. Find the target box (it will be highlighted when the properties screen appears).
  4. Left click at the end of the line (after chrome.exe).
  5. Press space.
  6. Add your command line switch. The result looks like this:
    C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-aero-peek-tabs
Instead of Bill, it will be your username of course.
