Hello, what do you call the thing in the red box and more importantly, how do you get rid of it? I would have thought that it would have something to do with thumbnails, but since it’s not Aero theme it doesn’t seem to be that.
I have looked all over the Start Menu properties and Group Policies, but I cannot figure out how to make it so that it doesn’t appear when the mouse is hovering over it.
I guess the main reason I am having such a difficult time is because I do not know what it is called.

These are usually the applications’ thumbnails, but because you are not using the Aero interface, just the application titles are shown.
The only solution I could find is to extend the delay for the thumbnail to appear. This can be done by opening the Registry Editor (Start -> Run -> regedit.exe -> OK) and navigating to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced. Create a new DWORD (32bit) Value and call it ExtendedUIHoverTime. Double click it to edit the value, set the selection box to Decimal and enter a large value. The value is in milliseconds so a value of 10000 or 20000 will be sufficient.
Logoff and re-login to apply the changes.
Good luck! 🙂
