Idea: Windows Taskbar Priviews pinned to stay open.
« on: December 18, 2009, 03:25:07 PM »
When you hover over a running task on the taskbar, Windows shows a small thumbnail preview of all windows in that application.
Now, what if you could click a pin button any of these preview windows that stopped it from closing. You could keep an eye on another windows progress (moving files/ music/video / games etc) while viewing another application fullscreen. Kind of like PIP.

edit: Maybe this wouldn't work as it would get in the way of hovering over another running application to see it's preview.

So another idea would be that if you click a shortcut on any running task it will display a copy of it's windows thumbnail preview in a predefined location on your monitor.
