[Windows 11] Taskbar Previews don't appear with an animation

New Contributor

OS: Windows 11 22000.71


Steps to reproduce:

1.) Start an application (e.g. Edge)

2.) Move the mouse cursor over the Taskbar icon, so that its (Thumbnail-) Preview appears


Actual: There is no animation when the preview appears. They appear very prompt like a tooltip.


Expected: There should be the good known smooth from the bottom up animation.

There should also be the good known animation, when you move the mouse cursor between two taskbar icons and switch between their previews.


I had the same problem. I discovered that was because I had moved the taskbar to the top then I move it to the bottom again and the problem was solved. However, this problem did not exist in Windows 10.

I just had this problem, the animation still shows, but it goes off the screen,i also set the taskbar on the top and i discover this because i use a second monitor in vertical, so the animation is showed in the second monitor that i use above my laptop.
Thumbnails are missing because Microsoft removed the ribbon move. Which is a big mistake, because a lot of people use it that way. So far I have not found a way to show them in the top position. Send feedback to Microsoft, we hope they hear us and return the change of position. Or support my: https://aka.ms/AAdyr8i
