    Taskbar Problem


    When I put my cursor over an icon on my taskbar, I would like it to show what it is, not words. For example if I have my google open twice, I would like to see to windows pop up right on top of them to show me which one I want. Then click on the one I want.
    Thanks

    There is a registry key that determines how long of a delay before hovering over the icon in the taskbar before the thumbnail preview is displayed. You can't disable this entirely, however, I suspect that you likely have this key with a very long delay specified which would give the appearance that this is disabled.

    Take a look at the tutorial below which describes how to set this delay. You can delete the registry key referenced or set its value to 0. My suspicion is that you probably have this key with a very high number specified.

    Please let me know if this works for you!

    I don't know how I did it, but I did a system restore to the last point, and now it works. Thanks man.
