none
disable the Alt+Tab thumbnail preview

    Question

  • I was able to get around the taskbar thumbnail preview by doing regkey with the ExtendedUIHover setting, I've tried gpedit and other settings in the windows but none had shed any light.

    However, what bothers me more is the Alt+Tab thumbnail preview which is more of an annoyance to me, please dont tell me to go back to Win7 basic themes otherwise I wouldn't be here asking a way to work around this.

    Thank you in advance

  • You can set the "classic" Alt+Tab as default following this registry hack:

    Open Regedit and browse to this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer. Create a DWORD value AltTabSettings and set it to 1.
