I hate this goddamn thing!!!
    #529659 - 02/22/11 09:17 PM (5 years, 9 months ago)

Windows 7 has a feature I like to call the "popup taskbar".  Anyway when you've got a few windows open and you click on anything in the taskbar and this fucking pop menu comes on.  Sometimes it doesn't even go away when the mouse moves over to something else.  Well so far as I know there's no easy way to get rid of it, like say in the fucking control panel where something like this should be.  How bout right clicking the taskbar and selecting the preferences?  No not there either.  I figured I'd just let it stop bother me by just ignoring it since there's not a damn thing I can do but that's impossible so I googled it.  I found a few forums that offered this piece of advice:




Quote:


You can set the hover time to a long value

Open Regedit by the use of RUN command or start menu search go to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

there right click on right pane  Create a new DWORD called ExtendedUIHoverTime and set the value to 20000 (that's 20 seconds) or value of your wish..
for that much of seconds it will not pop up..
so by hopefully turned off.




So I tried that but it didn't do jack shit.  Anybody got any advice?

Nope just questions. When you have the mouse off of the little menu for a while then mouse over again, is it still active?

Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

It has no practical use for me and often gets in the freakin way.  Its like that fucking annoying paper clip that used to appear in word and give you tips.  Yeah sometimes it sticks and I have to move my cursor over it just to get rid of the damn thing.

Another: are you using aero?

That thing never really gets in my way.. I never really leave my mouse idle over any applications if I'm not trying to.. It's never really frozen in place for me until I clicked, it simply goes away as soon as I take my mouse off of it.. :shrug:

I do hate that I have to use it to access multiple windows in the same applications, like if I have more than one window open in Firefox or MSN, instead of them being next to each other, I have to mouse over, and then choose the window. Not that big of an inconvenience though.

I'm not sure how, but I know it can be turned off. I know because I never had it when I had Win7. I musta turned it off before it had the chance to piss me off.

Edit: And yeah, you can def. change the stacking feature. I hated that too.

Question. Is the popup window thing just a mini-version of the window? There IS a way to shut that off.

Find somewhere you can edit for performance of your computer. Its full of other options like turning off window animations and stuff (I think thats what it shows when you minimize). I'll see what I can find.

Edit:

Disabling the Unwanted Visual Effects in Windows 7 to Speed Up more

    * For this right click on ” Computer” and select “Properties” from the right click menu.
    * Click on ” Advanced System Settings ” from the left pane to open up the ” System Properties ” window.
    * Select the “Advanced” tab from it. Then Under ” Performance ” click ” Settings “. Choose ” Custom: ” Options From it.
    * Now un tick all the options and select only the last four options (actually three only needed; you can un tick the second option from the last four). See the screen shot if you have any doubt.
    * Now just logoff your system and turn logon.

Thats what I was talking about, IDK if it has what you mean in there or not. I think its called "preview" or something.

No wonder you don't like it. You don't even know how to properly post an image. You obviously don't know how to use a computer.

Wow further proof that my theory that everyone from New York is an asshole.  And forgive me if I don't know enough about posting shit on forums because my idea of a good time isn't pwning newbs on forums to prove my superiority.

That screen shot is not of my computer its just one I picked up while searching for a way to solve this problem.  As soon as I got this laptop I reverted back to the more user friendly classic windows format and changed everything else that I thought was unnecessary

I had the same problem so I just disabled all the touch pad functions.  I still haven't figured out how to disable the touch pad entirely.  Used to it was impossible to type because even when I'd hover over the damn thing I'd accidentally touch it and send the cursor halfway across the screen.


Thanks everybody for your help.  I'm still trying to figure this out so I'll let you know if it's fix.
