Task BAr Thumbnails in windows classic

#1
I love the taskbar preview feature aero has but i hate that aero eats cpu and ram. I want the taskbar preview to have the little picture that show up when you hold the mouse over the taskbar button

anyone know how.

If you disable Aero, the thumbnail taskbar preview also gets disabled.

This is quite ol, so I don't know if oy will work in Windows 7

I think I've found it. Hope it helps others with the same problem. I right-clicked on the folder, chose diable Thumbanil View in properties, then went to View>FolderOptions, clicked the View tab and unchecked

Show file attributes in Detail View, refreshed and it worked.


I went back to the drive properties and noticed the folder had the Read-Only attribute checked whereas before it didn't.

So I removed it all, right-clicked on the folder, chose Enable Thumbnail View and thewn checked the Read-Only attribute, refreshed and it worked.
I tried this a few times, but for some reason when I check Enable Thumbnail View, a check will not automatically be added to the Read-Only attribute.

So as long as both boxes are checked it works correctly.

Cool m8!!! Haven't tried. But may be the thread starter can do and revert back.

BTW, is this a workaround provided by MS or a flaw?
