    Windows 8 thumbnails missing for Google Chrome's jumplists


    Just curious if this is something that can be fixed?

    Say, I have several Google Chrome windows open in my Windows 8.1. Then if I leave my desktop, the screen turns off in about 20 minutes. (The system itself is not configured to enter sleep though.) When I later move the mouse to wake it up, log in to my account, and see the desktop, for some reason all Chrome thumbnails in Windows 8 jumplists appear blank. Here's a screenshot:

    Is there any way to prevent those thumbnails from disappearing?

    I just used Chrome & put my computer to sleep & woke it up & the thumbnails were still there---

    Maybe put it to sleep manually & wake it up to see what happens---
