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.




this is a nice little application.
For those who wish to try, here is the website and download.:)

Wow nice. I don't have a lag on my laptop (see sig for specs). It's instantaneous.

The only downside is if you like to keep your processes to a minimum, this program adds one more (using 4mb currently). I just wanted to try it, Im not going to keep it.

By live, I mean do the contents of the tasktip change while you're hovering over them?
For example, if you're downloading something in Vista, and you hover over the taskbar tile for the download window, you can see the progress bar actually moving in the tasktip. Or if you're playing a video, and you hover over the taskbar tile for the media player, you'll see the video playing in the tasktip too.

I just tested it....by watching a media clip and downloading a file while watching the progress bar. ...the media stream was delayed by a few seconds... Im sure its not as tweaked out like vista but for an xp add on, its not to shabby..
