    How do I set up a preview function? On all other forums I belong to when you move the mouse pointer over the thread title you get a preview of the first post. You don't have to open to see the first few lines of the thread. Makes it easy to skip threads I am not interested in.

    Do I need to set something to make this happen; or, is this function not available on this site????

    OK, my usual browser is Chrome. Just tried using the forum with Explorer and it works as it should. And, I now remember that it used to work in Chrome. So some setting in Chrome or in this new computer I just got for my birthday (Windows 8.1, which I am having trouble getting used to).

    So, my problem has something with my Chrome or computer settings. I have no idea what however.

    Any power users out there that can tell me what I have set wrong??

    Works fine for me on Chrome (win7/chrome 34.0.1847.131 m). I wish I could turn it off! :)

    You do have to hover the mouse over the title and it takes a second or two (you'll see a 'loading' dialog then the summary).

    I personally find this "feature" insanely annoying. To each their own.
