Windows 10: Minimize and thumbnails

    Minimize and thumbnails


    Hi,
    I just got a new Dell computer with Win10. when I minimize a page an icon appears at the bottom of the screen in the taskbar (?) and a thumbnail picture appears at the right side of the screen. I don't want the thumbnails and I haven't found a way to stop them with out stopping all thumbnails. I just don't want minimized pages to show up on my desktop.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Gester

    Hi there, Gester. Welcome to the forum.

    Never ran into this myself. Could this be a Dell feature?

    Please post a screenshot.

    HG,
    Thanks for you offer of help. I haven't managed to get a screen shot into a reply message.

    On a happy note, the problem is gone. I'm not sure why or how.
