Windows 7 taskbar preview

The live taskbar preview is a feature that was first introduced in Windows Vista. It allows the user to hover their mouse over the open programs in the Taskbar, and see a thumbnail view of them. This feature can be useful for checking in on other programs. For example, seeing if you antivirus scan has completed.


Windows 7 improved this feature by allowing users to see a thumbnail view of programs as a fullscreen.
