Enable Preview Of Chrome Tabs In Windows 7 Taksbar

You can now preview open Google Chrome tabs right in the taskbar - a feature that Windows 7 provides. By using this simple trick you will be able to display a tiny preview of all open tabs in chrome just by hovering your mouse over the Chrome icon in taskbar.

Do the following -

  • Right click on the Chrome Icon on desktop
  • Select 'Properties'
  • Head over to 'Shortcut' tab
  • Now, at the end of the path in 'Target', viz: C:\Users\CEan\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe add a space and append following code:
  • --enable-aero-peek-tabs
  • The whole thing should look like this -
C:\Users\CEan\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-aero-peek-tabs
Note, the path location you've in the tab should be left intact, else it won't function.

Restart Chrome and open two-three tabs. Enjoy previews of all open tabs.
