At work we are kind of slow to adopt new technology. I’d like to move faster, but the general idea seems to be that if it isn’t broken, then leave it alone.
We just moved to Windows 7 last year for a bunch of our users, and one of their biggest complaints was about the taskbar thumbnail previews of the open programs. You know… you hover over an open program at the bottom of the screen and it shows you a thumbnail of the program. It’s kind of neat, but useless. I played with a bunch of settings, and finally got it so they didn’t pop up. This was all done through the registry.
The other day I read about 7+ Taskbar Tweaker that looks like it would have done the trick.
7+ Taskbar Tweaker allows you to configure various aspects of the Windows taskbar.
Most of the configuration options it provides can’t be tweaked using the taskbar properties or the registry.
I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks interesting.
