  1. Windows not Showing Thumbnail Previews on Taskbar


    I'm not sure why, but my taskbar doesn't show the thumbnail previews when there are multiple of the same window open. It shows the thumbnail preview if there's only one, but if there's two it just shows titles, like thisIt used to show them until recently, i think they disappeared when i installed an update?How do i get the full thumbnails back? I checked in the visual effects settings, and they're all turned on...Thanks.

    How to always show taskbar thumbnail previews?

    Hello dismas, *Smile

    This would be from the taskbar threshold limit to show a list instead of thumbnails. You can change the threshold limit using the tutorial below to increase it. Setting it to "0" (zero) will always show thumbnails.

    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
