How do I disable the taskbar thumbnail previews in Windows 8?
I recent installed Win8 and I'm liking it so far (with some third party tools to make it usable).
One thing that I can't seem to fix is the taskbar previews. My eyesight's horrible so the preview windows just get in the way, and text would be more useful. I know this is fixable in Win7, but the methods used for that don't seem to apply here.

Create new DWORD: "ExtendedUIHoverTime" and set it to a really high number (it's in milliseconds) to delay the preview popup virtually forever (over 7 weeks, anyway). Apparently it doesn't like it if you set it to exactly 0xffffffff, I think it treats
it as 0. But 0xfffffffe works just fine. Kind of weird.
