    Default How to Speed Up Taskbar Thumbnails in Windows 7

    Windows 7 brings a new enhanced Taskbar a.k.a Superbar, the most interesting changes made in the GUI. When you hover your mouse on the program icon, it shows the thumbnail previews of the program.You can change the delay time that the mouse pointer has to stay hovered over an item before that item's thumbnail preview is displayed.


    Here's how you can do this>>>

    1. Click on the Start button, type regedit in the search box and hit enter.
    2. Now you'll have Registry Editor open. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse




    3. In the right pane, double-click on MouseHoverTime and type any value less than 400, say 20 in the Value data field (the values are in milliseconds). If u want them to appear ultrafast then type 0.






    4. Now close Registry Editor and restart the computer to see the results.

    Now hover your mouse on any taskbar icon and see if thumbnails are appearing faster than before.

    Hello Friends........

    1.Open Notepad.

    2.Copy and paste the following into the new text document:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse]
    "MouseHoverTime"="0"

    3.Save the document as speedy_thumbnails.reg.

    4. Double-click the new file to merge it into the Registry.

    5. Continue through the UAC prompt and confirm that you wish to perform the action.

    6. Restart you computer (or simply stop and start Explorer.exe from the Task Manager)

    Thanks
