    Cannot turn off Taskbar Animations


    Hi

    I have followed both methods here

    Taskbar Animations - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    But the pesky Taskbar Animations still show.

    What is happening?

    Thanks

    Hello Daniel,

    Is it the exact same taskbar animation described in the tutorial, or something else?

    Hi Shawn,

    No, you are absolutely correct, I did not read the "Manual" it is working correctly, what I am trying to do is stop the pop ups all together, they just get in the way.

    Is there a way to do this.

    Cheers

    In that case, you should be able to use one of the options in the tutorial below disable taskbar thumbnail previews.

    Thanks for you help, I love the no preview mode I got from the REG fix.

    Regards
