Windows 7: Aero Peek in Windows 7

07 May 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home

Thank you Shawn, Wow! What alot of things to check out just to hover. I won't have time to look at this until the weekend. When I right click the taskbar and go to properties, 'Use Aero Peek to preview the desktop' is grayed out and I can't put a check in there. Yes, I have a theme now. It still shows text when I hover. I will check this out later. Thank you for your help!

Yep, this is all to make sure that you will have everything set to support Aero so that it will hopefully be enabled again by Windows 7. Aero Peek will not work either if your Aero is disabled.

Aero Peek too slow to reveal windows!
hi, I have changed the Aero Peek speed from 400ms to 40ms, which made it quicker. But I have a problem, although hovering the mouse over active task bar icons to reveal thumbnails is quicker, the window of the program is slow to appear on the screen, if you know what I mean. :) For example,...
