A new tutorial titled How to to disable and enable Taskbar Thumbnail Preview in Windows 7 was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

A feature of Windows 7 is that it will show you a preview, or small thumbnail
image, of the open windows for a particular program when you hover over it.
For example, if you have 3 Internet Explorer windows open and hover your mouse
cursor over the Internet Explorer icon on your taskbar, it will pop-up 3 small
images of each of your Internet Explorer windows and allow you to select the
one you want to make active. An example of this feature can be seen in the image

Example of the Windows 7 Taskbar Thumbnail Preview
Though, in theory this feature is a good one, for many other people
it is really annoying and can actually get in the way of productivity when these
thumbnails pop-up over work you are trying to do.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
