    Make taskbar 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. 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

    1. Click "Disable Thumbnails"
    2. Click "Apply"

    No need to restart or logout to take effect
