    As noted in #2 above, I already tried that and it did nothing - still got only thumbnail previews. I still have all the other registry entries noted above in there as well, so would that screw something up?

    I'm not sure why it's not working for you then since it works for me. As a test, give Taskbar Tweaker a try to see how it does.

    I gave Taskbar Tweaker a try, and lo and behold, it works just fine now. It looks like I need to run it at startup or else the settings go away until I open the program. Correct?

    Should I leave all the other settings in the registry or delete them?

    Thanks for all your help.

    Great news.

    Nar, you just need to set it and forget it with Taskbar Tweaker.

    It's fine to leave the other registry settings as is.
