Wisely or not, I allowed M$ to upgrade by OS to Windows 10. My system has one very irritating "feature" which I think only began then.
If my cursor unintentionally drops onto an open icon in the taskbar a preview screen about 4x3 cm appears above it. If I have many documents open in OO these will extend across the entire screen.
That would be okay if they would go away when I moved the cursor back into the main screen, or at least only stay for a few seconds. It seems like the only ways to get rid of them are:
- hit anything on the keyboard, so I find and hit ESC if I do not want to use the keyboad
- going via an unopened icon in the task bar before exiting back to the main screen
- clicking on the icon being displayed and then clicking anywhere on the main screen.
I'd prefer to not have this "feature". I'm happy to see these previews if either I go there or if a click on a taskbar icon - if only they'd disappear if I then clicked somewhere on the main screen, or some seconds later if the cursor moves away is fine. I'd rather have no previews at all than ones I must work to get rid of.
I've looked through everything listed after searching for 'taskbar', then 'preview', in Control Panel. I've turned off every option after a right-click in the vacant area of the toolbar. Nothing looks remotely like what I want.
Does anyone know how to disable this damn thing off?
