    Application preview


    Hi,
    I clicked on something in show hidden icons task bar that caused a preview of open applications to appear in the right side bar area of the screen in the gadgets area.
    If I rt click it the options are:
    Always show this process
    Always on top
    Opacity
    Process
    Minimize Window
    Close window - this closes the application

    I don't want this and I need help in deactivating it
    Thanks
    Frank C

    Windows 10 does not have "gadgets" or "gadgets area". Whatever "gadget area" you have on your desktop is a product of a third-party software, which has nothing to do with Windows. You have to specify what software it is if you want to ask questions about it.
