    Is it possible to turn off the shimmering rays that appear when you hover over the show desktop icon without turning off aero peek?

    Aero Peek grayed out


    My aero peek is grayed out, it is also checked. I have the proper desk top selected.
    I recently had some malware issues and was helped by HP help. I gave the tech control and they performed their majic and voila, I had some issues removed. Now all I get is the name of the window that is open when I move my cursor over the icons. I've tried to reset it and I get an error about needing to turn off the "remote access". well, I've tried to find where it is turned on but can't seem to find anything that shows it is active. any suggestions?

    Hello Cporet, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It sounds like you may not have Aero working. Check the items in the red Warning box at the top of the turorial to see if any of that may be the issue.

    Hope this helps for now,

    Mine works now


    Mine is completely opposite of what one person says, that if you enable the save taskbar thumbnails.
    If I disable mine, aero peek works. If I enable it, it doesn't work. Very weird to me.

    Hello IJmir, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    I have updated the Disable REG file in OPTION 4. Please download and try it again to see if it may help. Be sure to restart the computer afterwards to apply.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks Shawn,

    I downloaded it again (by clicking on the original button under option 4) but Aero Peek is still (annoyingly) there. Why would it be so difficult to remove a feature that nobody asked for in the first place (as far as I'm aware). At least when I buy a house and it comes with mosquitos I can use a spray to get rid of them. But when I buy Windows 7 and it comes with Aero Peek, there is no way to get rid of it?

    .... I followed the steps as given in the original advice and also shut down the laptop and started it again after following those steps.

    IJmir,

    Were you not able to do Option 1 and/or Option 2 to turn off Aero Peek?

    Turning Aero peek off


    Shawn,

    Yes, Options 1 and 2 work, but they only disable Aero Peek for a peek at the Desktop. So I am still stuck with annoying windows popping up every time I move the cursor too low
    Is there really no way to get rid of this feature?
