Windows 10 - Disable Taskbar thumbnail hover preview

  • Windows>Run>Regedit
  • Browse to:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
    • Right-click on the right side, select New, and click on DWORD (32-bit) Value.
    • Enter the name as ExtendedUIHoverTime and press Enter.
    • Double-click ExtendedUIHoverTime and change its value to 30000 (Leave it on hexadecimal)
    • Click OK. Close the Registry. Restart your computer to complete the task.
  • I had to disable the "Activate a window by hovering over it with a mouse" option because this seems to break a lot of the Windows 10 right click and popup menus
    • Click Windows>Search>Ease of Access
    • Make the mouse easier to use
    • Untick  "Activate a window by hovering over it with a mouse"
