    Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 9: how to get Taskbar Thumbnail Preview?

    I have installed windows 7 on the computer of mine. I have installed Internet Explorer 9 RC on the computer of mine. I was able to see text whenever I hover the mouse on the Internet Explorer button on the taskbar. It is used to be large icons which shows the content which is associated with that particular tab. Let me know if I am able to get the icons back instead of using text lines. Any suggestion to fix the matter would be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

    I let you know that this particular thing Taskbar Thumbnail Preview would only work when Windows Aero desktop effects is enabled on the computer of yours. So if you have disabled that particular thing then you will not be able to get Taskbar Thumbnail Preview on the computer of yours. You will not get thing like Taskbar thumbnails instead you will be able to get the list of all the windows opened in text details only.

    I recommend that you should go for the third party application program to meet the requirement of yours. Well I let you know that you can use 7 Taskbar Tweaker. You can use this particular tool to get the desired results. You can get this particular tool from the official website of the developer. You can download and installed the same on the computer of yours and use the same to tweak the taskbar accordingly.
