Windows - Enable Peek

    Question

  • I need a solution for my application - that works with Windows 7, 8 & 8.1. My application is primarily used in dual display systems, where it streams the content to the secondary screen (in a full screen mode) and the primary screen would be used by the PC user to continue work.

    In such a scenario, when the PC user goes through the items in taskbar and mouse-overs through the thumbnails, all the windows get minimized including the video being played. This is done by the "Enable Peek" setting as per the documentation I went through. Disabling the Enable Peek functionality resolves the issue.

    Is there a way to programmatically enable/disable this functionality. This would be helpful, as I don't want to disable the "Enable Peek" functionality forever. The program will disable it while streaming the video and set the user preference back when done.

    Thanks,

    Sreeram.
