Task Bar Icons
« on: April 12, 2014, 12:18:32 pm »
How do I turn on the task bar mouse over icon for the program. Some how I con them turn off. I a CADer that at times I might have multi draws open and need to see what there are when I pass the mouse over the program icon. Some how it got it turn off and only show the text of the drawing, where it use to show a icon type pic of the drawings that are open up.

Do you mean that "Taskbar Thumbnail Live Preview" is missing? See picture!

First you can look here and see if this help you: http://www.askvg.com/how-to-turn-off-taskbar-thumbnail-live-previews-in-windows-7/
But change the value of DisablePreviewWindow to 0.
If you are new to changing things in the registry, make a backup first with this program: Tweaking.com - Registry Backup http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/registry_backup.html

If the first link didn't help you can take a look here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/52265-taskbar-thumbnail-previews-enable-disable.html

What version of Windows?

Some settings are in different spots, so which version are you on?

I thought you might be interested on what I'm working on. You can see all parts there is and why it helps to Aero Peek on.

Ok on Windows 7 the service "Desktop Window Manager Session Manager" must be running in order for the preveiw to work. I just tested on my Windows 7 in vmware, I always tunr off "Desktop Window Manager Session Manager" because it is a horrible cpu hog, but when it is off you dont get the glass effect (Which I hate anyways) and you dont get the preview.

So check to make sure that service is running and set to automatic :-)
