mouse to the nearest tab (without clicking the tab) the tabs content will be shown as preview Such

option was called tab preview.

tweaks but it was restored after Windows 10 Anniversary Update Which lead me to rewrite this post

with proof how it works...

It involves creating a new registry key.Even if you don't know anything about registry don't worry
