  1. Aero peek not working and multiple thumbnails not showing up


    I think this happened after I've set visual effects to "adjust for best performance" and set it back to custom and enabled all settings later on. Here are screenshots of settings i currently have set:

    Desktop peek is working fine, but when I hover over window thumbnail, it doesn't show me the window.

    Also if I have more than one windows from the same program opened, it doesn't show individual thumbnails:

    Any idea what could be causing this?

  2. Taskbar Aero-Peek doesn't work with more than one window

    Aero peek works perfectly fine with just one window, but when multiple windows of the same application are open, the titles are displayed instead of thumbnails. I think this only started happening after I updated windows. Any ideas? Thanks.

  4. Aero peek not working and multiple thumbnails not showing up

    Fixed it by going to regedit and setting DisablePreviewWindow to 0 under Advanced and setting NumThumbnails under Taskband to higher value, both of the folders were in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
