How to Disable and Enable Taskbar Thumbnail Previews in Windows 1 week 18 hours ago rhiannon

How to Disable and Enable Taskbar Thumbnail Previews in Windows 1 week 21 hours ago jmaloney

What's interesting to me is that the registry key and enable peek settings, which are supposed to control the preview, don't. Apparently there's one flag to rule them all (like LOTR). It also interests me that the registry key setting works for you, indicating that your Windows 10 works differently from my Windows 10. I have a similar problem with my UEFI BIOS now. It says Secure Boot is enabled, but both Windows System Information and Belarc Advisor say Secure Boot is Off. As my father would say, "It's not a perfect world."

How to Disable and Enable Taskbar Thumbnail Previews in Windows 1 week 23 hours ago rhiannon

Extending the UI hover time might work, the info is in the How-To Geek article. Unchecking Enable Peek is a good suggestion. Also right clicking the file and unblock the file is a good idea, I use WinAero to unblock downloaded files, and I also have the disable taskbar previews in WinAero checked and it made no difference.
I'm not surprised this isn't working for you, I have similar issues with Windows 10 often. Things I install disappear from the system, usually things that work in the Windows File Explorer context menu. Sage Thumbs disappears, Image Resizer disappears, and some other random programs disappear. All have to be reinstalled. I have more trouble with Windows 10 than any previous Windows operating system.

How to Disable and Enable Taskbar Thumbnail Previews in Windows 1 week 1 day ago jmaloney

This didn't work for me. I downloaded and ran the file to disable the previews. Defender popped up saying the file might be dangerous. I told Defender to run it anyway. The screen blinked. I pointed at a taskbar stub and a preview popped up. I right clicked the downloaded file and this time ran it as an administrator. The screen blinked. I pointed at a taskbar stub and a preview popped up. I navigated to the key in RegEdit and saw that it had been added and set appropriately. Hmm.

I did a little research and discovered there's a setting in Windows 10 for disabling taskbar previews, called Enable Peek:

1. Right-click on This PC in File Explorer or go to Control Panel\System and Security\System
2. Select Advanced System Settings on the left
3. Click the Settings button in the Performance section
4. On the Visual Effects tab, uncheck Enable Peek
5. Click OK
6. Reboot.

I performed those steps and I still get a popup preview when I hover on a taskbar task. Maybe the steps above will work for others here, but not for me. Strange. I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

Where's thejigsawpuzzles.com? Love this site, no downloading of anything, just play on site. Have been using this site for years now and was concerned about the phaseout of Adobe Flash, but they said they are ready for the change over. You can choose how many pieces you want to do in any of the hundreds of puzzles there. Also choose the type of puzzle pieces you want to work with...classic, etc.. You can Full Screen, if needed, any puzzle to work on it. My 92-yr-old Mom had been doing a puzzle every day for yrs before she passed. Cannot say about doing any on a mobile phone though.

Can say the people there are great...any problem just email and they get back to you within 24 hours, if not sooner. BTW, you do not have to sign in or even have an account to do any puzzle, though the site will keep track of all the puzzles you do if you sign in...unlike Jigzone and a few others where you have to try to remember which ones you've done in the past.
