    Turn off Windows Preview

      How do I turn off that annoying window preview when hovering over an opened object? How do I change the menu font size inside of Solidworks? Thank you.

          Kim,

          To change the fonts used in the SolidWorks:
          From Desktop:
          Start - Control Panel - Display
          From Display Properties:
          Appearance (Tab) - Advanced Button
          From Advanced Appearance: (For the FMT)
          Select "Icon" (From the "Item:" drop down list.)
          Then select a Font, Size, etc.
          From Advanced Appearance: (For the Menus)
          Select "Menu" (From the "Item:" drop down list.)
          Then select a Font, Size, etc.

          Not sure about the the window preview, but it may be associated to the setting in Solidworks:
          Tools - Options - System Options, uncheck: "Show thumbnail graphics in Windows Explorer.

          Two other things worth mentioning here;
          #1 - In Windows Explorer, go to Tools - Folder Options and select "Use Windows classic folders"
          #2 - Start - Control Panel - System
          From System Properties:
          Advanced (Tab) - "Settings" Button (From the "Performance Area".)
          From Performance Options:
          Select "Adjust for best performance".

          This is how I roll, as lean & mean as possible!

            How do I turn off that annoying window preview when hovering over an opened object?

            Where is this happening? In a Windows window, or SW window, or ???
