Turning off thumbnail preview in the taskbar

Hello

for some reason, I must have pressed some shortcuts and providing transparent windows and the forecast of nail on the taskbar, any open windows. I don't want that. I want the parameters of taskbar perfectly superimposed and default to a single button labeled with all open files/windows stacked vertically. In other words, I hate Aero and is how the taskbar preview of content. I like the vertical look neat.

Can someone please? Impossible to find anywhere in help how to disable and restore the default settings.

See you soon.

Hello Andy Rosa,.

Thank you for visiting the Microsoft answers community.

There is no way to change this feature, even with keys. Basic Help is the only way that has been designed to perform this function. However, you are able to select other themes that you like the background for and copy the pictures and change the basic theme with these images as a slide show background.

-Right click Desktop > click Customize
-Click on desktop background > right click on each image you want to save > select make a copy (place the copy in a folder in your library of images that you want to use)

Repeat for each image throughout each theme. Then select all the images to include in the background slide show.

Hope this helps Chris.H

  • Why is the thumbnail preview in the taskbar tasks not updated?

    I noticed when I hover over a minimized in the taskbar, window that the vignette does not update. For example, if I reduce the thumbnail Windows Media Player does not display the actual film that plays, instead it shows a still image.

    The behavior you describe works correctly, nail forecast will be updated only if the window is in full screen mode.

  • When I open a folder of images, it no longer displays thumbnail previews of the images

    original title: thumbnails not showing upward

    For some reason any when I open a folder of images, it no longer displays thumbnail previews of the images. Instead, I get the generic pictures of a red & yellow flower or a lake and mountains. I did research online and found the problem, which was "Always show icons, never thumbnails" was checked in the control PANEL, OPTIONS of FOLDERS, thenVIEW. Once I found the problem, I disabled it and clicked on apply. But nothing. I restarted and it still does not display thumbnail previews. Last night for some reason, he began to build, but then stopped. So, although the "always show icons, never thumbnails" setting is not checked, it will still not display thumbnails. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is probably controlled by the power settings. Once you enter the power settings there should be an option something similar to 'change the closure of the hood '. There are probably several options such as sleeping, ect...

    Hi all! Today, I have a problem with Photoshop CS6, I don't know why it won't let me not turn off anti-aliasing in the paint bucket tool. The toolbar shows me a gray box of anti-aliasing, unverifiable:

    Photoshop Problem.jpg

    Could someone explain how to solve? It is very irritating.

    The color - indexed color Mode you cannot click on Anti Alias.

    So if you change the image in RGB or CMYK, you will then be able to use the option of anti-aliasing.

  • Qosmio X 70-A-10N turn off when I play the games

    Hello

    I bought 2 months ago Qosmio x 70-a-10n with geforce GTX 770 M. I read everywhere that it is a computer game. Months ago, I installed F1 2013 and start it. After 20 minutes of play my PC just turn off and never again. (like this guy here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZmeMyu5Cto).

    Can I send my PC to the service and then they change my motherboard (maybe). 1 week ago, I took the service and see that the computer still has a problem with the temperature. Early 2013 F1 for 5 minutes only and see with Speedfan, that the temperature of the GPU goes to 60 years and I stop the game, because that think the pc is overheating so it shuts off again.

    If I want a pc for movies or on the internet, I'll buy another pc for less money. :((((
    I am a little angry because I like to play games, but does not have this problem. What can I do to fix this? :((((((((

    Excuse me for my English!
    Thank you

    Computers laptops Qosmio are offered by Toshiba for years. I don't know how long, but perhaps a dozen years and this laptop has been on the first day, designed for multimedia and games so that every Qosmio laptop has a powerful graphics card.
    I don't really know what the problem with your machine and why this happens, but try it with different games and close down unnecessary applications before starting the game.

    Use laptop on the desk and don't forget the laptop can be cooled properly. Temperature of 60 degrees is certainly not the critical temperature so you don't have to interrupt your game.

    One question: are you using the original pre-installed OS that you got with your laptop?

    When you hold my iPhone 6 up to my ear during a call, the screen is not turn off and disable the buttons. The sensor is not broken, because the auto brightness works very well. It is just inside the calls when he won't work. Is there a setting to turn off the screen when you hold it to my ear?

    The proximity sensor and ambient light sensor are two different things. The fact that your ambient light sensor works you says nothing about the functioning of your proximity sensor.

    You get a deal on the phone? A screen protector? If so, remove them and test again. If the screen does not always dark, you may have a hardware problem.
