  1. Taskbar Thumbnails doesn't seem to be working when TWO of same type


    Hello,

    I'm having issues with Windows Areo most likely. I'm on Windows 10, and for some reason I lost the ability to have 2 preview taskbar thumbnails when I have 2 windows of the same type

    Example:

    Taskbar Thumbnails doesn't seem to be working when TWO of same type [​IMG]


    However when only one is presented, it works as it should:

    Taskbar Thumbnails doesn't seem to be working when TWO of same type [​IMG]


    ALSO:

    When I'm on windows explorer and I go to desktop, and click ANY map, it double opens the map in 2 new windows

    Taskbar Thumbnails doesn't seem to be working when TWO of same type [​IMG]


    Any help is highly appriciated

    :)

    Taskbar not showing popup icons for multiple windows

    If I only have one of a certain type of window open on my taskbar, then when I hover over the icon for it, a thumbnail of the window will pop up as expected. If however, I have 2 or more of the same type of window open on my taskbar, (e.g. 2 File Explorer
    windows) then when I hover over the icon, the names of the windows will be displayed rather than the thumbnails of the windows. How do I change this so that the thumbnails appear when I have multiple of the same type of window open and I hover over the icon
    on the taskbar?

  3. Windows 10 - taskbar thumbnails - turn them off - how?

    You need to edit the registry. Set NumThumbnails to 1 (0 doesn't work in Windows 10)

    Various settings for the Taskbar thumbnails are documented here. http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/increase-taskbar-thumbnail-preview-size-windows/ (Ignore
    the title, and read about "NumThumbnails")

    Edit:

    If NumThumbnails is set to 1, if more than one instance of a program is open, the taskbar thumbnails won't show up. Instead they appear stacked.

    However, when a single instance of a program is running, the thumbnail still shows up.

    I get 2 thumbnails of the same type

    Not sure why yours doesn't work

    As for your 2nd question, maybe it's the mouse being sensitive?
    EDIT: Not sure if I understand, what if you right click and "open in new window"?

  5. I somehow managed to fix it with a windows tool, my limit was somehow set to ONLY 1 to show for thumbnail.

    But now I don't have anymore the AREO PEEK when I go over a window...
