Windows 10 Taskbar Preview Thumbnail Disabler





By default, Windows displays Preview Thumbnails when you roll your mouse cursor over an icon in the taskbar. The intent behind this is to give you a visual preview of the available windows currently open in that application. You can click a thumbnail to jump directly to that window, and for most people this behavior is desirable.


But some people prefer a more minimal Windows experience, and choose to turn these previews off. Sadly, there is no UI available to disable these preview thumnails. Furthermore, there isn't even a way to completely disable them under-the-hood.

However, we can use a clever registry trick to change the time required for your mouse-hover to trigger the preview thumbnails to display. We can change this to such a high value that you'll never experience a preview thumbnail under normal PC usage.


 This utility is a one-click solution to disable or re-enable Taskbar Preview Thumbnails in Windows 10. It will not work for other Windows versions.
