The best solution I have found is to go into this registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced Then create a new DWORD value called ExtendedUIHoverTime with a value of 20000. That's supposed to cause a 20 second delay before the preview pops up, but for me it stopped it from happening entirely. Source: ...

I find this feature very useful. Is there a way to enable it? The behaviour is a little different on Windows versions newer than XP. On Windows 7 and 10, you can: Drag the image and hover over the the show desktop icon (by default it is located at the right hand end of the taskbar): Windows 7 Classic Theme Windows 7 Aero Theme Windows 10 Aero ...

I also updated to the latest version of Putty (v. 0.67) and found that it still did not work (even after re-pining). However, I realized that I had to remove all my Recent Sessions for it to work properly. I did the following: Unpin Putty from the taskbar Start Putty and re-pin it to the taskbar. Close Putty Right-click the Putty icon on the taskbar. ...

You could always use Virtual Desktop Windows Key + Ctrl + D This will allow you to open virtual desktop, that way you are not so cluttered.

To quickly change between them you can use. To go to the ...

I've found out that Windows logo key + CTRL + NR works ALWAYS. The only miss is the preview of the window I jump in.

I run Windows 7. The Windows Explorer icon in my task bar quit working. When I tried to open it I got a message stating: Can't open this item. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Do you want to remove this item? Tried opening in Safe Mode as well but got same message. I ran the SFC scan for corrupted files but the results said none were ...

Create a shortcut for Google Chrome in any folder, change it's icon and pin it to the taskbar. If it is already pinned to the taskbar, you have to unpin it first.

Ok, I had a problem just like this. In Windows 10 the active buttons are highlighted by a small green strip at the bottom of the button, only about 3-10 pixels in width. If your screen is not properly sized then this green strip is not visible on the monitor and you cannot see which buttons are active and which are not. As yet, it is not possible to ...

(Copied from comments as per TO's request): The thing is, this menu is (as far as I know) not defined by external parameters in the registry or something, it's just part of the logic inside explorer.exe. So we would need to effectively modify explorer.exe's logic, which is possible by loading our own code into it and intercepting the action of opening the ...

EDIT : not the correct answer, though I'll leave it here for completeness and history. It's inside shell32.dll Try running: grep -ain "taskmgr.exe" shell32.dll > shell32-grep.txt Most of the text you'll receive will be an xml. Open it with a text editor and search for taskmgr.exe, you'll find it in the tag <sh:command>. Look around and you'll ...

This fix works, but does screw up usage of the short date format in other programs, such as Outlook, Word, Excel etc. These negative effects, however, are reduced (maybe even eliminated) if you put the "ddd" insert at the END of the short date format. I'm using "M/d/yyyy - ddd" and it doesn't seem to carryover into the other programs in the same way as when ...
