    Turn off taskbar thumbnail previews in Windows 10 Pro?


    Sorry, newbie question....I just migrated to Windows 10 from Windows 7 and I don't like the behavior of Windows 10 where when you hover over a taskbar app at the bottom of the screen, it gives you a thumbnail preview of any open windows in the apps.

    I prefer the previous behavior of Windows 7, where you got a *text list* of the open windows for each app, but not a thumbnail for each app.

    I found a supposed fix online at: Turn Off Taskbar Thumbnail Previews in Windows 7/8/10 .

    The fix was called "Turn Off Taskbar Thumbnail Previews in Windows 7/8/10"

    I followed the instructions to disable taskbar previews in group policy, and I found the correct setting to toggle, but even after rebooting the machine, it didn't seem to work.

    Any ideas?

    Using Windows 10 Pro.

    Thanks.

    :)

  3. 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

    Getting rid of taskbar thumbnail previews in windows 10

    I want to remove the preview also then I used Taskbar Thumbnails Tuner to achieved it. Although it said it is working on Windows 7 and 8 only, I have tested it is also working on Windows 10. The step is simple:

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

    No need to restart or logout to take effect
