Guest rwh03001 Posted June 27, 2010 Report Share Posted June 27, 2010 Hello, I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and there are a few things that are very bothersome which I have been unable to fix. One of the issues is the thumbnail previews on the task bar. W7 seems to group similar thumbnails together, so if you hover your mouse over one, it shows you a thumbnail of all similar items. Given the option to turn this grouping on/off, this would be a great idea. (sorry for images being displayed incorrectly. Click on them to get a better understanding of what I'm talking about. However, the problem is that after 15 similar items, the thumbnails are replaced with a list of the taskbar windows, which is very bad for me. The irony is that I only need 16 windows, but the change takes place after 15. After 15, it looks like this: While this might seem trivial, it makes a big difference to me. I tried re-sizing the thumbnails in the registry, but it still stopped displaying effectively at 15. Is it possible to set it so that W7 either shows thumbnails beyond 15 similar items or does not group the thumbnails together and only shows the one I'm hovering over (like it was in vista)? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
