As time passes, it seems like the public is becoming more and more unsure about how good Windows Vista will be. If it does not live up to the hype, how about we just rip some of the good things out of it and bring them to Windows XP? I think that was the thought behind Visual Task Tips.

Visual Task Tips is a lightweight shell enhancement utility. It provides thumbnail preview image for each task in the Windows Taskbar, as seen in the upcoming Microsoft Windows Vista.

At first, I didn’t think this would be that useful of a freeware program. I was wrong. With just adding something as simple as thumbnail previews to my taskbar I noticed I had become a little more productive. While I am working here, I usually have several programs going at once. Visual Task Tips allowed me to get a better handle on which one was which.

Visual Task Tips is totally free, pretty to look at, and makes you more productive. The only thing more this program could do is print money! Since I doubt that last feature will be built in to any freeware program anytime soon, you’ll just have to live with the other excellent features.
