How can I get rid of the annoying Taskbar Thumnails? I have tried using the following and it seems to work for all of 10 seconds: 1. Click on start and type on search bar gpedit.msc and press enter 2. Now navigate to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, and Start Menu and Taskbar in left pan of Group Policy Editor 3. Locate Ã¢â‚¬Å“Turn off Taskbar ThumbnailsÃ¢â‚¬Â in right pan of Group policy editor and double click on it. 4. Select Disable click apply and Press ok 5. Now check your Taskbar, it shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t show Thumbnails Preview .
