    How to Enable or Disable Taskbar Thumbnail Live Previews in Windows 10


    When you hover over the taskbar icon of an opened item (ex: Google Chrome), it will show you a thumbnail preview of its opened windows or tabs.

    If you hover over the thumbnail preview of this item, it will instantly show you a live preview (peek) of only that item on your desktop. If you like, you can change the thumbnail live preview hover delay time to how many milliseconds you want instead of showing the live preview instantly.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable showing taskbar thumbnail live previews for your account in Windows 10.

    EXAMPLE: Taskbar thumbnail live preview

  2. Disable Taskbar Thumbnail Preview?

    Hey there,

    I was just searching the internet for ways to disable the Taskbar Thumbnail Preview in Windows 10, and I found one that half-worked (only some apps use list view instead of thumbnails). I was wondering if there was a way to completely disable the preview?
    I am alright editing the registry.

    Thanks,

    Pointy

    Cannot disable Taskbar live preview in 7!

    Hi all,

    Recently tried out Windows 7 and decided to run it on my other HDD insted of VMware.

    I'm trying to disable the taskbar live preview, and I've tried everything I can find:

    > Creating a DWORD reg file named "DisablePreviewWindow" value 1 - Didn't work.

    > Creating a DWORD reg file named "TaskbarNoPreview" value 1 - Didn't work.

    > Local group policy editer "Turn off taskbar thumbnails" and check enable - Didn't work and noticed that it says "Supported on: Windows Vista Only"...

    Can anyone tell me if they know how to turn this off it's really really annoying, and more annoying that everything I've tried dosn't work...

    Cheers to anyone that can help *Smile Enable or Disable Taskbar Thumbnail Live Previews in Windows 10 :)

    Hey Josey, *Smile

    Which part?
    Just to note, it doesn't disable taskbar thumbnail previews, only the live preview of it on the desktop.
