This is the fifth screencast in a series of Windows 7 screencasts for showing developers how to use the taskbar to Light Up their applications on Windows 7.

Out of the box, the Windows 7 taskbar provides support for thumbnail and previews, which make it easier for users to preview running applications and switch between application windows with greater confidence. But sometimes you want to override the default behavior; this screencast shows how you can create custom thumbnail previews and thumbnail clips to provide your unique preview implementation.

The code shown in this screencast is available to download. The other screencasts in this series are:
