    Hello WhitePaw,

    Sorry that you feel this way.  The answer at this time is no.  There is no option to adjust the size of the Preview Pane in Aero Peek.  This has been submitted as feedback by several people so it could be available in later builds.

    I wish you would reconsider you choice of uninstalling.  While i can understand your point of the way the answers were presented things like this are apparent in every community.  Please do not let a few comments spoil your experience.

  • If you are visually impaired, you should be using the magnifyer tool.

  • You could go to Control Panel then Appearance and Personalization and under Display select "Make text and other items larger or smaller".  Mind you this makes Everything bigger, but might help.

  • This is not what I was asking. I want to know if its possable to make the little preview larger. The rest of my screen is already on a large monitor etc. I don't need magnifier, so no sugestions on that. Thank you.

  • The thumbnails/taskbar preview are not meant to be readable. If you hover on the items, it will show you the actual window anyway so why bother to have bigger thumbnails? Anyway, what screen resolution are you using?

  • Screen resolution is 720i on a 22" monitor and not the issue. All I want to know is if the preview can be resized. yes or no. Please do not respond with other comments on changing the rest of the display since its readable to me. Thank you.

  • I don't know if it is possible under Windows 7 but under vista there were small programs that allowed you to change the size of the taskbar thumbnails. Think it was called Ave Thumbnail Sizer.

     

    I doubt it would work in W7 but perhaps someone will be making one for & soon?

  • I think what nsswaga was wanting to know about your screen resolution was, as I believe that would be the only way you would get a larger or smaller preview, with screen resolution. I understand you didn't want to change these settings as the screen is readable. However as another poster had mentioned if you hover over the preview it will bring that screen to the front so you can see exactly what is displayed. In Short there is no way to have a larger or smaller preview without changing screen resolution.

    As for the response you got and now you're uninstalling. These people are only trying to help you and yet you demand! what answers they give. Take all replies onboard and then select the appropriate answer for your solution! Simple!

     

    Have a nice day folks!

  • You're uninstalling???  Whats the point, the previews are bigger than they were in Vista, and if you hover over the popup preview, you can see the full sized window, with the others hidden.  If this isnt a perfect solution, perhaps you were just looking for any old excuse to criticise and remove Windows 7, and are just looking for attention here...

     

    Just a thought

    Mr. WhitePaw, you can't pretend like the Linux community is a warm fuzzy all embracing happy place. Anyone who uses Linux knows better than that.

    Lets not forget that it was the Unix/Linux community that made the phrase "RTFM" the motto of their cult.

    JP-M: just how many Linux forums are you a member of?

    I personally have never treated a fellow forum member in such a way, and don't ever remember ever being on the receiving end.

    My two cents.
