    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

    How to disable taskbar previews?

    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 How to disable taskbar previews? :)
