TaskBar Hover Over Modifications

Q: TaskBar Hover Over Modifications

When you hover over applications open in the taskbar, is there a way of changing the view to "list" the open applications opposed to the default view that shows a picture of each item opened for that application?

Preferred Solution: TaskBar Hover Over Modifications

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello meppwc, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The tutorial below can help you set to use taskbar list mode instead of taskbar thumbnail previews. Step 1 in Option One would be easiest for this.

Taskbar List or Thumbnail Previews Mode - Change

Hello good Sirs,
Question, Is there a way to keep a taskbar thumbnail on without having to hover over it? Say if i wanted to stream video media on a website and watch it while playing a mmo. i like the size and position of the thumbnail previews, and would like to keep them running. Not all the time, just when i want them to.

Thank you in advance.

A:Keeping the Taskbar Thumbnail On without the hover?

Sometimes my taskbar lookes the ability to know when my cursor leaves the taskbar.  For example, I point at a running app, and I see the color light up and the preview appear.  Then I move my mouse away and the color effect stays and the preview
won't go away.  I click on something on my desktop and the preview disappears, but the color effect is still on the icon acting like I'm pointing at it.
And no, I'm not gonna kill the .explorer.exe process, and I don't want to restart my computer every 5 minutes for it to away, because it comes back again, every time and it is random. I don't have installed any themes or tweak programs, the Windows is completely
vanilla. It doesn't matter what programs I install or have installed, I already formatted, then installed only the basics (Internet driver, browser, audio,etc) and it still happened, and again, it's NOT a graphics driver issue, I tested it.
This is not a driver related problem, this is a Windows Seven bug. Is there any way at all to fix this? Or remove that yellow glow completely? This is really annoying!
Here is a picture of it, in case you don't know exactly what I'm referring to:

Notice that even though the folder is selected, the glow freezes on any program/folder on the taskbar you hover your mouse. The windows thinks that the mouse cursor is still there, so it never goes away.

A:Taskbar Hover Glow Doesn't Go Away

But I have never encountered this kind of issue. Please update your display card driver to latest version. Since you have already tried to reinstall Windows 7. Based on my experience, this should be a display driver issue.
Also, you may change a theme or disable Areo effect and reenable it again for a test.Juke Chou

I've had this issue for years and now decided to try to fix it. When I change programs via the taskbar, no matter where I have my pointer, the taskbar acts as if my pointer was still on that program by continuing to glow and retaining the hover-over text. This only happens on the basic theme, not on the Aero theme.

This isn't that much of a problem, it's just annoying. It's not a graphics driver issue or a install-specific issue as it has done this on many video cards I've owned and many copies of Win7 I've used over the years.

I've attached an image of this issue, I noted where the pointer is for emphasis that my pointer is nowhere's near the taskbar when it does this.

Win XP Pro SP2. When I hover over a button on the taskbar the window is supposed to restore. Well it's not happening. This is a new computer and my first custom built one. Is this a setting I can change or is it messed up somehow.

A:Hover over button on taskbar to maximize not working

Read other 6 answers

I want to turn off that annoying and pointless function that makes the last taskbar button I hovered over glow with a different colour. It'd make more sense if it were the button of the item in use that glowed, but it's not; it's just which one you accidentally hovered over last. It's distracting and I hate it.

I went into Computer > Properties > Advanced System Settings > Performance - Settings > and unclicked 'Animations in the taskbar and start menu', I did that a few months ago when I first tried to kill this feature, and it seemed to work after a restart, but then it kept sporadically coming back.
Now the hot track colours are back again, and no clicking or unclicking of the 'Animations in the taskbar' etc will stop it.

How do I kill this thing?
Profound thanks in advance.

A:Disable 'hot track' hover colours in taskbar?

Oh well now I just did a restart (after clicking and unclicking the animation setting) and the hot track colour thing has stopped again.

Hurrah for now!

But if there's any way to stop it permanently so it won't keep coming back, that would be great, thank you.

Been searching on here on how to fix this issue, and I think I figured out how to fix it. At least, it is now working again for me.

1. Open regedit.exe
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
3. Locate ForegroundFlashCount
4. Change the value to 0
5. Close regedit

After I did this, my taskbar thumbnails quit flickering. Took it about 10 seconds for Windows to notice the registry change, and all has been well.

Nevermind, it only seemed to fix it for about 10 minutes, and then it reverted back.

Sorry for the barely understandable title, I couldn't fit my entire query within the character limit.

Basically what I want is to disable the feature, that minimizes/hides all other windows when I hover over a taskbar thumbnail. It's extremely annoying when I hold meetings and presentations, that my desktop shows all the time, while I am switching windows by selecting a taskbar thumbnail, it's just unprofessional.

Alt+Tab has the same annoying effect, so that's no solution either. If the only way to make Windows stop with this is to disable previewing windows alltogether when hovering over a thumbnail, that's fine by me, the most important thing is, that it should not touch the other windows.

I hope there is a solution for this. Thanks in advance!

Hello, This is kind of a difficult issue to explain but I will try.

Occasionally my desktop icons and/or the taskbar go black/missing and do not reappear until I hover my mouse over the area where they should have been.

Another issue I occasionally have is that when I have a program open (like MS Outlook for example) and have one or more desktop folders open which overlap the program, I will minimize the folder, but it will leave these little black boxes or this weird "imprint" of that folder i just minimized onto the maximized MS Outlook or whatever program I have open. The only way it goes away usually is when I minimize and maximize all folders or programs that i have open or hover it with my mouse until it goes away and displays correctly.

Again I know this is a little hard to explain, especially the 2nd issue I noted above with the "imprint" and black boxes, but fortunately, I was able to catch the issue above with some photos which I am attaching so you can see exactly what im talking about. There are a total of 3 pictures; the 1st and 2nd pics are individual pics of each monitor and the 3rd one is a pic of the monitors side by side. Please pay attention to the areas which i've drawn red arrows on the pics to see the areas i'm referring to. I had previously posted a thread on this issue before with a video of what was occurring but never got a solution. I'm hoping with these pictures, somebody will be able to solve this issue for me.

I know this has been discussed in the past (tweak programs, regedits, gpedit.msc, control panel settings, etc.) but a lot of the info may be dated and some was version and build specific.

As of Feb 2016, what are people doing?

I have Windows 7 Professional (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)

When you open a window, it creates a link on the taskbar--whether a browser window, folder, or program such as a Word document. I'd like to have the links appear as a list rather than thumbnails. I'd also like to have only 1 link button for Word, 1 for each Firefox open window, 1 for Explorer, etc., rather than a button for each document/instance/whatever. So when you hover over the Word icon, a list of open word documents would appear, and when you hover over firefox, a list of the open windows would appear, etc..

Is there a way to do this now?

Here's what I used to do. If i needed to open a new file in Photoshop, I would minimize it to the taskbar. Then I would then open a folder with my images/files in it (or from the desktop) I would left click any image/file and drag it to the minimized photoshop button on the taskbar. By hovering the image/file over the photoshop button on the taskbar for a second or two, photoshop would restore/maximize and I could drop the image directly onto the photoshop page.

Actually, any open program that was minimized to the taskbar could easily be restored by hovering a file over it.

This works on all my other computers, and used to work on this one, but has magically stopped.

It is a very handy technique to use, and since i have been using it for years, it is very annoying to have lost the ability.

Is there a way to get rid of the way Windows 7 keeps a unique color on each Taskbar item you hover the mouse over? (i.e., Firefox's tab is orange, the color being based on the icon's colors) It's a feature I don't want. I could be using Firefox, for example, but the last item my mouse happened to hover over was an AIM IM window, and suddenly it looks like that tab requires my attention. If the unique colors must exist, is there a way to at least cause it to be that only the currently active window is what gets the color, and no other tab can steal it with a mouse hover? The problem is the color remains even when the mouse has gone off the tab *and* the tab isn't the active one.

For example, is there a way to cause Window 7's tabs to act as they did in Windows XP (or Vista, if it wasn't like Window 7's, because I don't know)? Only the currently-active tab looks any different than any other, and preferably the same toned-down color each time, not some bright yellow (like AIM) or orange (Firefox), because, as Windows XP veterans know, a bright orange refers to a program requesting your attention. I tried to get used to these unwanted features, and I never did, I simply get annoyed at having to hover the mouse over tabs until it lands on one that has an undistracting soft blue, like a Microsoft Word document's tab.

Another problem, completely unrelated, is that, for whatever reason, my Windows 7 Desktop Slideshow, set to Shuffle every 5 m... Read more

When I hover over the icons that are loaded into the system tray after startup, the information dialog box, that describes what the icon is, is hiding behind the start menu taskbar.

Such a simple problem. It's driving me nuts!

I attached a small screenshot of exactly what I mean. That dialog box in particular is a bit large so you can see most of the information but there is still information hiding behind the taskbar.

Why is it doing this? I have a brand new HP laptop wiped and imaged with XP Pro. I tried changing visual properties, taskbar properties, etc.

I tried restarting.

This is a strange issue that's been bothering the living hell out of me. NO one seem to know how to get this resolved.

I installed Tune Up Utilities and just uninstalled it again actually, and done a bit tweaking to the system. Now for example if I have 5 tabs opened in IE (which you can see the little tabs in it's taskbar icon), but when I hover the icon, the live thumbnails don't automatically pop up. I have to click the icon at the bottom and THEN the live thumbnails come up above it.

Please do not tell me this is how it's supposed to work because it's NOT. A fresh installation or new profile does not work this way, instead, any icon in the taskbar with applications opened, shows the live thumbnails upon HOVERING the icon.

Hi there,

So, i own a pc, a laptop and an xbox 360 and they are all connected to my home network via a router. now, when i have all three of these running at the same time it can cause a great deal of annoyance and confusion when we are all trying to compete for the most amount of bandwidth,

For example, my brother will be playing halo 2 and have msn open and i will be trying to surf the net on my laptop. now my brother will be complaing that he is not getting "host" and spends some of his games in red bar and my internet pages take a few minutes to load.

so i was wondering if there are any programs or freeware out there that i can go and buy so that i can modify it so that i can tell my router to give my xbox (lets say....) 60 percent of my bandwidth while splitting the other 40% between the two computers and then when the xbox is off it diverts the bandwidth to where it is needed most

If there is anything out there that can help me please post a name and/or link and it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

New to XP (media center sp2), not new to Windows OS. Are there any "out of the box" tweaks/modifications that are recommended? Any XP tweak guides? I am not a gamer, don't overclock...just want it stable and lean without all the unecessary background apps running and dont need all the superfluous software.

For example, do many with XP disable system restore? I did with my old OS as I have an external HD withh system backup images. Should I keep the "enable write caching on the disk" checked in the HD setting in the device manager? Is Corel Photo CCentter bundled with any other software? I have many other questions, but willl settle for feedback first.

Also, if anyone has recently purchased a Dell E510 (or other Dell) can you tell me all the trial ware that I can uninstall? I am afraid to get rid of too much because I fear its bundled into other apps that I need. I curse the OEMs for doing this.

Hi all, I've been hard at work in modifiying my watercooling unit, I know it is not such a good product, but after modifications it is amazing. Soon I will post some pictures if anyone is interested. Here is a list of what I've done:

1. Drained the system
2. Took it apart
3. Took out all stock fans, replaced with Antec Led Fans
4. Took out the restrictive stock tubing, replaced with Tygon 3/8
5. Ran leak test for 3 hours, at the beginning there was one leak, which I fixed with some tightening of c-clamp.
6. Modified front panel, placed another grill, as well as the back panel
7. Modified knob lightning

After all this, when I replaced the tubing, I immediately noticed that the flow meter was spinning much faster, and this effectively reduced my temperatures about 2-3 Celsius at load. Replacing the fans, with better airflow and quieter fans also brought the temps down 1-2 Celsius, also the use of Danger Den MCT-5 Coolant brought my temperatures down 2-3 Celsius as well.
In the end, I used to get a load temp of about 44 Celsius, now I only get about 37-38 Celsius. Quite pleased with the project and acheivement. If you guys want pictures, or illustrations of how I did this, just ask. I will post them later.

I guess I'll ask this here as I cannot get through to RT Se7en Lite themselves. I used eicfg removal so I can have my install USB work for any of the versions. When I go to use RT Se7en Lite it asks which version I want to modify. I think the somewhat minor things I want to change will work for all if not most of the versions. Will it actually modify them all or is there any way to select more than one version or do I have to do each individually? Or run the eicfg after I do mods?

Also does anyone know what is with RT Se7en Lite? I sent an email to their support email and I get (several days of) messages that it is not deliverable: 454 4.7.0 TLS not available due to local problem. Their main website will never connect.

Hello there, I am thinking of puchasing an M710 and I had a few questions I am hoping people could answer for me before taking the plunge. In terms of the power supply I belive its quite low wattage, in the low 200's - is it possible to upgrade this at a later date. I may down the line wish to buy a graphics card and I know it will need a better psu. In terms of graphics cards, the power should be the only issue, the case itself is big enough to fit some standard graphics cards. For RAM, how many RAM slots are there? if I get the 8GB option, is that going to be one stick of 8 or 2x4gbs - again if I want to upgrade this, will there be an available slot, or will I have to get rid of the exsisting RAM? I am going to add an SSD, will they automatically load the OS on the SSD as opposed to the standard 500gb hard drive? Thanks a lot in advance

(although I could be talked out of that, if it matters).   I would, ideally, like to install Realtek Audio Manager to replace the Beats Audio that the machine came with.  From what I've read online, it seems that it may not be possible.  I plan to do some audio recording on this new machine, and I don't really want everything filtering through Beats, with its kooky settings and sound manipulations.   I tried to download the Realtek Audio Driver, but after the install it doesn't show up anywhere (other than Add/Remove Programs, strangely).  It doesn't appear in Control Panel, or Device Manager, or Programs.   The only file that shows up in a computer-wide search is the setup file, which I've run twice.  I certainly don't have the option or access to choose it over Beats.  I have a feeling it's simply not compatible.   So I guess my question is this: Is there a modification I can make to this machine (ie, new sound card?) so that I can install and use Realtek? Or is Beats simply hardwired into the motherboard in such a way that there are no alternatives.   Thanks for reading,Nathan

Let's say I'm in Australia, and I open the British news website bbc.com. Obviously what I'll see isn't exactly what the Brits are seeing (different ads and even different stories - Australian-weighted).
OK, so, would there there be a way to open this site from Aust. so I'm seeing exactly what the Brits are seeing?
Thanks very much for any responses.

Hi everybody,
ATA V. 1.9.7312.32791 - fresh install, no update
Just recently installed Microsoft's ATA. I only use lightweight deployment option for ata gateways on every domain controller available, no other ata gateways in use. So for my understanding I don't need any configuration of event forwarding since the lightweight
gateways are able to read any event locally.

I am not able to get a report about modifications of sensitive groups, it's greyed out. An informational message below it says: "No modifications of sensitive groups were observed, make sure that events forwarding is properly configured."
I changed many things about my sensitive groups for testing purpose btw.
Any hints?

Thanks, regards, tim

I am running AdAware/AdWatch on Windows XP with IE6.
AdWatch is showing a continuous attempt to modify the registry. This is what the typical modification attempt log shows:
registry modification detected.

Ad-Watch event log
value: search page
new data:http://www.google.com

Is this connected to MS' Windows Live Page that comes up with the opening of IE6?
Any input or help on what is going will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

It looks like you had microsoft live search set as your search engine possibly when you installed a windows live component and then you installed something like google toolbar which wants to change it to google.

Did you approve or deny the change?

OR just turn off adwatch , make the change and turn it back on.

Hi - I'm new here so please be kind.

I have just bought a Packard Bell IMEDIA A3317 - 3G, triple Phenom core, graphics & sound integrated in motherboard, 320G HD, Vista Home basic. No driver discs included, but 2 created from within Vista for a) Vista re-install and b) Apps Drivers

I need to do ASP programming, so tried loading Win 2000 Professional (SP4) onto a new 320G HD. Sadly, the only screen resolution that works is 640/480 . I obviously need win2000 Pro drivers - since this is a standard package computer, one would imagine that they would be available as a block somewhere, but no joy in finding them.

The screen resolution hinders (prevents) setup of internet access, so I can't access Driver Robot over the net (driver robot needs to work on the machine with the problem)

There is a PCI-E slot, but am not sure if that would be a solution.

This must be a problem others have faced somewhere (or am I the only one!!!!! ) Any ideas on where to get a package of drivers? or what else I could do?

Thanks in advance


P.S. I know it isn't the best of machines, but my needs are very simple - just a little ASP development and writing letters.

I have been infected 2 days ago and Windows Update didn't work anymore (error code 80246008). So I have cleaned the corrupt files with MicrosoftFixit found on the Web.

Finally, I have got the BITS service working again with the following batch program wich calls himself the "BITS.reg" file :

sc create BITS binpath= "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" start= delayed-auto
regedit /s c:\Users\fab\Desktop\BITS.REG
net start bits
rmdir %windir%\softwaredistribution /s /q
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s atl.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
net start wuauserv

I execute this bacth file as Administrator and the BITS key appears in registry with Windows Update working fine.

The issue is that the modifications in the registry base is not taken into account for the next startup of Windows 7 : I can't see anymore the BITS key and I have to run this bacth program every time there's a new startup of Windows 7.

Is it a problem of right persmissions on this Key ? Have I got to change the owner as Administrator ?

Here is the file BITS.reg :

Hi, lets get this straight you open regedit and the Bits service is there (as you posted). Then you restart your computer and do not run the .Bat file if you open regedit the bits service is completely missing from the registry? OR is it that Bits is simply not running in services (automatic delayed start)? Is your user name fab?

I have disabled the Secure Boot, changed the Boot Priority ordem to USB drive and tried to install the Linux system. It shows a message of successful installation and asks to restart the computer. However, when it restarts, there is a message of Boot error and it asks for a Boot disk or a Boot removable device...I have real somewhere that the Boot should be in Legacy mode, but it on-line shows this option when the CSM option is set to always, however, without giving me access to that...

im on win xp sp3, system scanners are cccleaner,nod32 and superanti spyware.

this is what happened.

im browsing though my yahoo mail inbox, saw this spam (subject: unknown)
decided to add the email address to blocked emails. i have to open the email so that i can see the address.
the problem began.

these are my troubleshooting procedures:
1. ran scanners - nothing detected
2. cleaned cookies, history
3. ccleaner registry scan - nothing
4. system restore - still
5. imported a backup reg file

I believe that upon opening the email it modified some of registry keys for the keyboard since i dont see any unrecognized processes in my task manager, at least from the visible list.

it is quite annoying since i use keyboard shortcuts alot like ctrl+arrow keys to navigate on some texts.

also some keys that have been modified is:

insert key = stand bys the PC
pressing - = -0
pressing 1 = `1

any help will be very much appreciated

Hi people..

as suspected opening the email modified current keyboard mapping.

After hours of digging solutions in the net i found this one:

Restore keyboard mapping - Dev Hardware

reinstallation of the keyboard registry keys for the US layout solved my issue..

my keyboard is running smoothly after the steps given in that thread.

lesson learned: if the spam is in the inbox, move it to spam folder to reduce the risks if you intend to view it.

sorry can't find any edit button on my original post.

I'm tagging this as solved.

Can anyone recommend any good software for logging computer modifications and maintenance? I support my family and friends and sometimes it's hard to keep all all the changes I have done over the years in my lil noggin. Also it would help me log fixes so I could reference if someone else had the same issue I could more easily reference the fix.

Hellllllo !

On my work laptop I have my Administrator account, which I use all the time, and a Guest account that people can use to go on the Internet etc.

What I have not found out how to do yet is to prevent the Guest account users from :

- Installing or removing software
- Changing any setting in control panel (or the shortcuts leading to it, such as "right-click on the Desktop > personalize"
- Changing internet connections (I've caught guests on the neighbor's open network often, even though my WPA2 wireless network is remembered)

What I have found how to do, using permissions:

- Open specific programs (I have gone and edited the permissions on all the .exes files for the programs I wanted to restrict, and it works fine)
- Access partitions or hard drives (Guests only see the path exists, they have no access and no info to the partitions/drives I restricted)

Now, about my problem, what I've tried so far:

- Same as I did to restrict access to partitions/hard drives, using permissions: I tried to modify the permissions of the Guest account to allow only reading and launching apps on C: as a whole. That didn't work though, Windows wouldn't let me change the permissions on the system disc, even as an administrator with UAC off. I tried many combinations of allow/deny and no change is permitted.

So, what can I do ? Right now, there are only a few shortcuts on the Guest account desktop, but I've tested it: using the Start menu or the com... Read more

A:How to prevent Guest account from making modifications to the computer

A guest account DOESN'T have admin rights, just as a standard user. He/she cannot modify registry keys in HKLM so cannot modify system wide settings!

He can change his own font and his own windows sounds. But not install programs.

Hi guys,

I deactivated some processes in msconfig to improve the startup speed of my computer. I always did some changes, rebooted the computer and looked whether everything is still working. It looked as if everything was working, but then I recognised that there were blue frames around my desktop symbols:

Further I recognised, that Internet Explorer 8 and Microsoft Excel 2003 show massive Display Errors (the main problem is, that images are not displayed properly):

Kostenlos Bilder hochladen | img4web.com

So I decided to re-activate the processes I deactivated before the last re-boot. It didn't change a thing. Then I decided to re-activate all processes, but even this didn't help:

Kostenlos Bilder hochladen | img4web.com

Apart from the changes is msconfig I haven't done any changes in the time when the error first appeared. It seems quite strange to me, that re-activating the processes does not fix the problem.

My operating system is Windows XP Professional SP3.
Unfortunately System recovery was disabled before I did the changes (Yes, I will activate it for future modifications on my system), so I can't simply un-do everything.

I'm really desperate about this problem and really hope, that someone here can help me (otherwise I will re-install Windows, but this seems a bit excessive ;-) ).

Many thanks in advance ! :)
