Windows 10: Lost preview Solved

    Lost preview

    Hovering the mouse over the folder icon on the task bar brings up icons of all the open folders. Before I changed something I used to be able to move the mouse to hover over one of those icons and it would show an enlarged version of that icon so I could easily read the data there. Now I no longer get that enlarged icon but I don't know what was changed to stop it from working. Help please.

    Hello Larry, :)

    If you mean for the taskbar thumbnail preview, then you might see if one of the tutorials below may something you changed to cause it to be gone.

    Thanks a lot Brink. It was the second one that helped. I had changed from custom performance settings to best performance. That changed disabled "peek" which is what I needed to get back the view I want. I just couldn't remember what I had changed until I saw the list again under custom performance.
