    Not able to disable miniature pop-up windows in windows 7

    I have windows 7 computer where i am trying to disable "small windows" which comes out as pop up when i roll my mouse over the icons in the taskbar. It is quite annoying. I was able to disable this feature in windows vista but i am not able to do the same in windows 7. When i personalize and choosing the windows basic screen,it reaches near to my expectation but doesn't fixes it completely. What should i do?

    If you want to disable the taskbar thumbnail Preview in windows 7 then follow the below given procedure:
    1. Click on “Start” button,type “gpedit.msc” in the search box and hit Enter button on your keyboard. It will open Group Policy Editor.
    2. Now navigate to User Configuration>>Administrative Templates, and Start Menu and Taskbar in the left pane of Group Policy Editor.
    3. Locate “Turn off Taskbar Thumbnails” in right pane of Group policy editor and double click on it.
    4. Select “Enabled” and click “Apply” and “OK”.
    If it doesn't work for you then you can also do the same with the help of registry. However registry is the most sensitive part of any OS so you must take a backup before making any changes to it. If you have already done that, follow the below given procedure:
    1. Click on Start button, type regedit.exe in the search box and press ENTER button on your keyboard.
    2. After that Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Advanced"
    3. Then Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value and name it as ExtendedUIHoverTime
    4. After that, Double-click ExtendedUIHoverTime and click Decimal
    5. To increase the hover delay to 5 seconds, type 5000 . Type 10000 for 10 seconds and so forth…
    6. Finally Exit the Registry Editor and Restart your computer.
