    Taskbar Thumbnails


    For some reason, hovering over icons on the taskbar bar no long shows the thumbnail/preview of the window and I have no idea of how to get it working again. Any help please?

    Hello Burbla, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Do you see a list instead?

    If you don't see anything, then check using the tutorial below to see if you may have mistakenly set the ExtendedUIHoverTime DWORD value to high.

    Thanks you for the response, It was a combination of both fixes (ExtendUIHoverTime was set to over 1 million or something like that) and (NumThumbnails had set itself to 0) to get it running properly. Very happy indeed now i have my system back to what I originally had it setup as before my new SSD and fresh install. Very grateful

    I've had an interesting occurance, Everything has been running fine until I i turned my system on today. I haven't changed anything in the Regedit, yet it changed the the taskbar values back to what wasn't working prior to fixing it. I've also noticed that another program isn't remembering the the settings input into it (ASUS GPU Tweak 2)

    I should also mention i did apply the latest update from Microdictator last night so perhaps it restored the settings?
