Is there any way in Windows 7 to change behaviour of the task bar / toolbar.

It would be good if it switched application simply by hovering the mouse over the "pop up" that comes out when you see the image. Is there a way of changing the behavior?

    I have checked through the task bar and I do not think you can switch applications by hovering. At least one of us would be most unhappy if that actually happened.  Like I said, no such option so far as I can see.
