    Change Delay Time to Show Taskbar Thumbnails in Windows 10


    I tried this on a standard account. Surprisingly, or maybe not, you can edit regedit under HKEY_CURRENT_USER as a standard user. Anyway, it doesn't seem to work and stays as 1000 ms efter after logout/login. I edited the registry as admin and added under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE instead. That way all users get it too.

    :)

    Taskbar not showing popup icons for multiple windows

    I found out how to fix this. There is setting where you can change the maximum number of thumbnails it shows before going into list view. Look at this site if anyone else has the same problem: Change Taskbar Thumbnail Threshold to Show List in Windows 10

    Windows 10 MS Edge: Only one thumbnail preview shown

    Microsoft Edge may have multiple websites open but only shows one thumbnail at a time from the taskbar. In the past you could see thumbnail previews for all open sites. Is there a setting that can change this?

    Thank you

    Change Delay Time to Show Taskbar Thumbnails in Windows 10

    Rather than set delay time value to wait, I want to set "time to show list" while hovering over a taskbar icon. Is there a registry setting that controls this? Thanks.

    Maybe my comment was ambiguous. I want the list to show longer. When I hover on a taskbar icon, it shows the list for about 4 seconds and then stops showing. I want to show the list of open windows to show as long as I hover over the taskbar icon.

    @Eddo51,

    I'm not aware of a setting for that, but it should stay open for as long as you have the pointer on the taskbar icon/button by default.

    The second pic is my RegEdit - as you can see it does not resemble the tutorial's image.

    Help, please?

    Hello @clemenzina, *Smile

    Your screenshot shows that you are in the HKLM key instead of HKCU.

  12. I have Start10 installed, could that be why I still can't go by the tutorial? (I've looked in Start10 and can't see options to show/delay taskbar popups.)

    On an older laptop I did have a small program that did it for me and thought I'd acquired it here, but cannot find it now.

    If the entry doesn't exist, it must be created. First, make a back up copy of the key in case something goes wrong. Click "File", "Export", type "backup.reg" into the "File name" box and click "Save". Then, right-click a blank spot on the right side, select "New", "DWORD(32 bit) value", type or paste "ExtendedUIHoverTime" as the name of the new value entry and press "Enter". If you type in the name, do not add any spaces and note that the letter after "U" is actually a capital "i". Double-click the entry, change "Value data" to "30000" and click "OK". You may have to restart the computer for the change to take effect.
