I hate it when I click on a task bar icon to open up a snoozing application, and a couple of seconds later, there’s a preview of the application showing at the bottom of the screen. I don’t need it as the icon tells me what it is, thanks! Getting rid is easy:
- Click the Menu button. (Mint’s equivalent of the ‘start’ button in some other operating systems!)
- Choose ‘Preferences’.
- Choose ‘Applets’.
- Scroll down, or search, for ‘Window List’.
- Select it, click the ‘configure’ button.
- Deselect ‘Show thumbnails on hover’.
You would, as I did, think that the setting might be found within the System Tray applet’s configuration, but you will find, as I did, that it doesn’t actually have any!
