    Taskbar Thumbnail Tweaker for Windows 8.1---got a link?


    Does anyone have a TRUSTWORTHY link for it? I tried to download it somewhere and was amazed at how much garbage got installed on my laptop---with no sign of the Thumbnail Tweaker.

    That version appears to be for Windows 7 and I don't see a button for disabling taskbar thumbnails.

    David, that's the website that installed a ton of garbage on my laptop. It took me a long time to clean up the mess. I do not recommend that link.

    I'm looking for a link that has worked well for someone.

    It worked good for me.

    I downloaded it myself & got no extras.

    You just have to be more careful of what you click on.

    There are four download buttons at that site. The one I clicked on started by installing an unzip program. Things got worse from that point. It installed a yahoo toolbar, antivirus, etc etc.

    I have used the site before so I know where to click.

    Even when installing any program one needs to be careful.
    I always click Advanced options in an install window.
    I find the unwanted crap there & untick it.
