stacking on taskbar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have my taskbar set up to stack multiple tabs/windows of the same type. Currently, when I hover over an icon, it shows me the open windows in a list style. I want to change this so that when I hover over the icon, it shows me thumbnails of the opened windows. I hope that makes sense. I can't remember where to change the settings to accomplish this.

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    that depends on how many IE tabs/windows you have currently open and your screen resolution... only the number of thumbnails that will fit on one line will be displayed before it reverts to a dropdown menu style.
