[solved] disable window list thumbnail preview

Post by PcMojo » Sun Feb 28, 2016 4:14 pm

While I like the new preview feature, for some of the work I do it gets in the way and slows me down. I didn't see instructions on how to disable it so I thought I'd document it here:

If you right click on a program on the taskbar, you should see "Configure the Window List" at the top of the menu. You should then see the "Window List" options. The last option is "Show Window Thumbails on Hover". Click to deselect.

An alternate route is System Settings -> Applets -> right click on 'Window list' -> Configure and you will see the "Window List" options. The last option is "Show Window Thumbails on Hover". Click to deselect.

I hope someone finds this useful!
