This post is a solution to a reader question, from now on every week we will select a reader question and will answer it with a solution possible to resolve it. We received this question from a reader who has just started using windows 7 and found the aero peek to be tool slow to reveal the windows opened.
The reason behind slow aero peek could be the low graphic hardware too or you may find it slow as per the default value, but still there is solution to fix the aero peek by modifying the registry. Aero Peek is also called the Desktop Preview feature in windows 7 which is used to give a glance about the position of the windows opened already.
Aero Peek looks like as shown in the image below, you can preview desktop by pressing window key + spacebar or move your mouse to the extreme right side of the taskbar, you will see a vertical rectangular portion. Moving your cursor to this area will make the open windows transparent and let you preview your desktop. [ as shown in the image below ]
In order to speed up aero peek or desktop preview you can try this freeware utility released at The Windows Club. This small program is called Desktop Peek Tweak which allows you to adjust Desktop Peek delay time, when you hover the mouse over the Desktop Preview button.
You can shorten this time to make the aero peek desktop preview to appear faster. The default value is 1 second or 1000 milli seconds. Shorten this to instant to make the preview more faster.
