Eyecandy - Visual Task Tips
« on: April 26, 2006, 11:25:23 PM »
here's a cool eye-candy, Visual Task Tips... works just nice out of the box but there's no configurable options.

Visual Task Tips is a lightweight shell enhancement utility. It provides thumbnail preview image for each task in the Windows Taskbar, like in the upcoming Microsoft Windows Vista. NOTE: Windows XP required to run Visual Task Tips.....(free)..

Nice find! It works flawlessly, looks very good, and *can* be quite useful. If not useful, at least it's great fun. I'm having some fun with it right now :)

yeah, i'm playing around with it too but lack of options bothers me a bit. like configuring the delay before the images show up, the size of the thumbnails, etc... i think i'll email the author and check on his to-do list.
