Earlier, grooveDexter showed you How To Enable Aero Peek for Firefox tabs, a much appreciated fix that lets you see previews of all of your open tabs by mousing over the Firefox tab in the Windows 7 taskbar. For Google Chrome, enabling Aero Peek previews for all tabs makes even more sense—especially as Google attempts to revolutionize the browser as an operating system. In Google’s ideal world, the Chrome tab bar will replace the Windows 7 taskbar, as we take more of our apps to the cloud. The only downside of that is that, by default, Aero Peek only shows one Google Chrome tab at a time. Luckily, there’s an easy fix for this
that enables Aero Peek previews for all Google Chrome tabs by using a Chrome.exe command line switch. This groovy tweak works with all Google Chrome channels, including the stable, beta and dev releases.
Create a shortcut for Google Chrome. If you already have a Chrome shortcut on your desktop or Quick Launch bar, you can use that one.
Right-click the Chrome shortcut and Click Properties.
In the Target field, add “–enable aero-peek-tabs” to the end (without the quotes). The entire string should be something like
Launch Google Chrome using your modified Chrome shortcut. Now, when you mouse-over the tab on the Windows Taskbar, you’ll see Aero Peek previews for all of the tabs. You’ll also notice that when you mouse-over an Aero Peek preview, the window in Chrome shows that tab (even if that tab isn’t currently selected).
Note: This feature is disabled by default for a reason—this is a feature Chrome intends to implement later, but for certain reasons, it’s not quite stable yet in some situations. If you experience any trouble with Chrome, try removing this line from your Shortcut.
