    I have found different blogs about this and it worked for other people, but for me it doesn't work. The only solution was to ask somebody since I couldn't find anything relating to this, or at least of help.

    No Task Bar (hovering) preview, no peeking, no full screen is on hovering over and clicking

    When there is no window opened, hovering over taskbar app icons, a preview is shown, but on hovering over preview no full window is opened, and no peeking is done, and also clicking on that small preview, no window opened.

    1. And whenever there is a window is opened then hovering over taskbar icons doesn't gives any preview of the window.
    2. But it still opens window, on just clicking on task bar icons ( i.e. working fine ).

    And when two windows of any app is being opened and if minimized any of them then you can not maximise that minimized window...???

    • And when both windows of same app is being minimized then hovering over task bar icon of that app still shows those two previews, but clicking on any preview doesn't provide anything, and thus it all means after minimizing those two window of that app you
      can not recover any of the window.
    Basically the problem is I'm not able to open window ( or make full ) from any task bar preview and the First (1.) one also of first paragraph.

    Windows 10: Disable Show/Peek at Desktop

    Sorry if I don't have the technical expertise to succinctly describe this issue. Every time I minimize a program to go to my desktop, I find that a layer of shade covers the entire desktop so that and I'm unable to click on any icons and unable to right-click.
    I take this as being the "Peek at desktop" status. I have to go to the far right my task bar and click the little sliver to enable my desktop, or as Windows calls it - "Show desktop." Is there any way to permanently disable the "Peek at desktop" status or
    to set the "Show desktop" status as the default when programs are closed or minimized?

    Thanks.

    Hovering my cursor over an app does not show a minimized window, even though enable peek is on.

    no full screen preview when hovering taskbar thumbnail

    Last time when I fresh install Windows 10 and whenever i hover my mouse cursor to multiple opened browser it show thumbnails, and when I next hover the cursor to that particular thumbnails it will show full screen preview as you might say peek. Now it doesn't
    do anything anymore.

    Can anyone help?

    The picture attached is the preview thumbnail and when i try hover to the default Firefox browser it does not 'peek' into it anymore.
