    If the entry doesn't exist, it must be created. First, make a back up copy of the key in case something goes wrong. Click "File", "Export", type "backup.reg" into the "File name" box and click "Save". Then, right-click a blank spot on the right side, select "New", "DWORD(32 bit) value", type or paste "ExtendedUIHoverTime" as the name of the new value entry and press "Enter". If you type in the name, do not add any spaces and note that the letter after "U" is actually a capital "i". Double-click the entry, change "Value data" to "30000" and click "OK". You may have to restart the computer for the change to take effect.

    Caveat on running Regedit as standard vs. admin user


    Regedit will change this for whichever user Regedit is run as.

    I tried this and it didn't do anything because, out of habit, I ran Regedit as admin. If you are doing this for your standard user account that you are logged into, DON'T run Regedit as admin. (I suppose that, if I had switched users to my admin account, I might have found that the change had taken effect there.) I then ran Regedit as my current user and it worked perfectly.

    You are able to edit this registry key as your standard user and must do so in order for to to make the change for the current logged-in user.

    Maybe this will prevent someone else's frustration.

    Hello Waldo, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Correct, it will be applied to the current user.

    Using "Run as administrator" will apply it to the administrator account you are running it as.

    thanks - this was a great help - I finally updated my desktop to win 10 last October and recently noticed the taskbar thumbnails were not showing up. I turned the peek on/off with every method I could find. something got corrupted along the way. My ExtendedUIHoverTime equated to about 308 hours which would explain they would not pop up. now that it's set to zero, it's working fine.
    While many don't like it , I find the thumbnails handy to select the right page depending on the application .

    I'm glad it was able to help Jerry, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I've seen bat files that you guys give us to do tasks like this. i get very nervous fooling with the registry and do not want to try this myself. Can you offer us a hack that's done for us? set the hover time to like 30 seconds or something. I think most people come here because they do not wish to see any preview pane popup at all, yeah? thanks

    No problem. Here's a .reg file below to set a 30 seconds ExtendedUIHoverTime.

    You'll need to restart the explorer process or sign out/in to apply after merging the .reg file below.
