I know, the easy solution would be to turn off desktop composition, but that would be like disabling visual styles in windows XP, going back to windows 98 look.

for me the most important thing about the desktop composition is that it let me choose colors, if not it is fixed to the green/bluish windows 7 default colores and cant be changed unless desktop compositiion is enabled.

but when desktop composition is enabled (i mean, by default, it is enabled) when i move the cursor over the taskbar, over the folders i get a very nice thumbanil view, yeah.. pretty cute. but, how do i know which one is the one i am looking for? of course, there are thumbnails, but come on, they are thumbnail of folders.

check the images of what i say

here i can't see the names, until i go one by one

without desktop composition

but here with windows 7 at minimum (desktop composition turned off, with just moving the cursor over the folders in taskbar i get the menu with the names and i go to the one i need, fast and without confusion.


is there any way i can have the names with desktop composition ON? or at leas the names offer the thumbnails.

I have never used desktop composition here in my Win 7 laptop but if you want some names or details to every window, use Taskbar properties -Taskbar buttons. Use Always combine, hide labels option.
