  • Question

  • My Windows 7 Taskbar Fullscreen Preview is Not Working.

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium 2009.  I go to Taskbar and Start Menu.  In very light type there is a "checkbox that is checked" and it says: "Use Aero Peek to Preview the Desktop".  

    I downloaded a 7+ Taskbar Tweaker and that menu does not give me the Full Screen Preview option.

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium 2009 on one of my other computers.  I go to Taskbar and Start Menu. In regular type there is a "checkbox that is checked" and it says: "Use Aero Peek to Preview the Desktop" as well and the Full Screen Preview works great.     Please advise.

    NOTE:  I did make sure that I had two or more files in the Taskbar to give the program a chance to work.

    Thanks!

  • using taskbar tweeker is not recommended, and most of this software not secure

    due to software or registry, it will make different result

    try this, but backup your registry first

    Open Regedit>Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>DWM>Enable Aero peek>Set this to 1

    I suggest you contact software manufactured for details support
