RESOLVED!!! I have the same issue, similarly, all suggestions never work... the following is my detailed symptom: When you move over the application icon on the taskbar (that has application opened), you would expect a preview to appear.

How did you run the program the first time? Instead of pinning it after it's running, pin it before it's running by right-clicking the shortcut or executable. I think this is due to the fact that lots of shortcuts or executables simply start up another application (like a launcher).

I'm aware of no registry (or otherwise) setting you can change in Windows to affect the width of that button. There are 3rd party utilities that can adjust the size (as long as the program is running). One I've tested on Windows 7 and 8.1 is Show Desktop, and it works as advertised. By opening the right-click menu, you can disable the "Peek at Desktop" ...

For me however, I run VNC on our machines. In the bottom right corner where the icons sit, I right-clicked VNC > Stop Listening (or stop service). Aero worked immediately ...

The icon still displays unread even though there are no unread messages in my inbox. The quick keyboard shortcut that I've found is to have one or ...

This is the same issue as Disable mouse speed check between monitors in windows 8.1 update 1. In my testing of this issue I found that changing the setting to 1 just decreases the speed at which the mouse sticks. Please see my solution in the other post for details.

This can happen due to spyware or a virus. Your best bet at the moment is to download HitMan Pro and create a bootable usb drive of it (use another pc if you have to, to create the usb drive). Then boot from the usb stick with hitman pro and scan for malware. When it repairs the problem reboot once more and everything should be fine again. Alternatively ...

You could possibly push your screen into overscan [at some quality ...

Neither folders nor data files, both of ...
