How To Disable Taskbar Thumbnail Preview On Windows 10

Introduction
 
In Microsoft Windows 10, at any time when you hover over an application symbol in the taskbar you get a tiny pop-up preview of the application's window. In the event that you happen to have numerous windows or tabs of that application open, that preview expands to demonstrate each one of them. They can be less imperative things claimed by another organization - clicking one takes you straight to that app. But sometimes it just gets in the way. Now you can disable the window taskbar thumbnail’s feature.
 
To disable the window taskbar thumbnail’s feature, you can follow these steps.
