The taskbar preview time is the time interval that it takes to show the window previews upon hovering the cursor over taskbar items:

This interval is a bit too long in my opinion and so I will shorten it by the means of the registry editor. Open it by typing regedit into a Run... prompt and in the left column, browse to the Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced key and right-click the right panel to create a new DWORD-Value (32-bit). Name it ExtendedUIHoverTime and assign it a Decimal number in milliseconds that represents the interval (I'll take 250 here, which is a quarter of a second).
