    Hello PCpassive, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It sounds like you are referring to taskbar thumbnail previews. If so, you can use the method in the tutorial below to set a high delay time to effectively disable them.

    I'm not aware of a way to directly disable taskbar thumbnail previews.

    Using the method above to set a very high delay time would be an effective workaround to disable them though. You won't see them anymore.

    Mine are disable, but no registry hack was done.
    I don't remember how I did it, but I'm guessing this was an option in Classic Shell.

    Classic Shell may have used the same method.

    If you like, you can check the registry to see if the same method was used or not.
