    How to OPEN Programs in Taskbar Preview WITHOUT Clicking ??


    Hi All :)
    yesterday I tried to use "game booster" program from asus, which disabled some visual effects from windows.
    and after that I disable the "game booster" program. and restart my pc. but some visual effects in my windows do not come back to normal

    one of the disappearing features is, where when I open the taskbar preview, and when I point my mouse(hover) into the preview, then the program will move / open automatically without having clicked.

    for example just like in this video

    see minute 2:10 - 2:20
    and I want the feature turned ON.

    I've tried several ways, but it did not work. some tips I've tried :

    Turn On or Off Peek at Desktop in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials


    this is my pc setting :

    This may be a silly suggestion, but have you tried unchecking "Enable Peek", clicking "Apply", and then checking it again and clicking "Okay"? I've had a similar issue with Folder Options, and managed to fix it this way

    @Triliuner I'm sorry to hear it's not as simple as that.

    When you have multiple windows opened from a single application e.g. 2 separate windows from Chrome, do they show up as previews when you hover over Chrome's icon in the taskbar, or as a list? Just asking to clarify that, they are at least showing as previews. If not, this should help: Change Taskbar Thumbnail Threshold to Show List in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials

    As for the different windows not showing when you hover your mouse over a preview, maybe it has something to do with the delay, see here: Change Delay Time to Show Taskbar Thumbnails in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials (restoring the default value)

    I hope that helps, if not, maybe others can suggest some other things to try..
