    Make task bar preview thumbnails order the same as app windows ?


    I'd like the task bar thumbnail previews to position the same way as the windows that they represent. For example, if I have 2 windows of Firefox, the task bar shows 2 thumbnail previews. If I click the left thumbnail I would like the left Firefox window to be foregrounded. If I click the right thumbnail, then the right window.

    Windows 10 knows about the relative position of the monitors because when I set up 2 monitors (notebook built-in and an external VGA monitor) I specify the positions of monitors. Since the Firefox windows have certain positions in the dual monitor space Windows has the relative positions of the 2 Firefox windows. This information should be used to position the thumbnails.

    Is it possible to achieve what I have described?

    :)

  2. Preview and thumbnails of pdf files are not available

    Hi Michelle, my name is Martin and I'm an Independent Advisor. I'll try to help you here.

    Preview and Thumbnails of PDF files can be disabled on your PC . . .

    I suggest that you follow steps below to enable this feature

    Start Adobe Reader

    Tap on Edit in the menu bar and select Preferences

    Under Categories highlight General

    Put the checkmark next to the box Enable PDF thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer

    I also recommend the article - Enable thumbnail of PDFs in Windows Explorer to get further information

    Video preview thumbnails

    Hello,

    System file corruption is one of the possible reasons why thumbnail preview has recently disappeared. To better assist you, please answer the following:

    • For clarification, are referring to video preview thumbnails when using File Explorer?
    • We would like to verify if you are referring to the Fall Creators Update. To see your
      Windows build and version, please follow the steps in this
      article
      .

    In the meantime, we suggest creating a Test User Profile. This is to see if the same issue occurs on a different user profile.

    To create a Test User Profile, follow these steps:

    • On Search, type Settings then hit the
      Enter
      key.
    • On Settings window, select Accounts.
    • Select Family & other people.
    • Select Add someone else to this PC.
    • Name the User Profile as TEST.
    • Assign a password for TEST user, then select Next.
    • Sign in TEST user.

    We'll be waiting on the results.

    Make task bar preview thumbnails order the same as app windows ?

    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.
