Enabling Google Instant Previews

Google Instant Previews available from Google Search results doesn’t mean that this feature is enabled by default. This feature is only enabled once you click magnifying glass next to title of the result.

Once you click magnifying glass icon, Google Instant Previews will be enabled and Google will load previews for other results in the background, so you  can flip through them.

You can preview for all search results pages, (yes for all search results and search results pages) as you  can hover the cursor over each result.

Disabling Google Instant Previews

Once you enable Google Instant Previews with Single click you can turn  off them with clicking magnifying glass icon again.At present there is not permanent way to disable or turn off Google Instant Previews. as is the same case with Google Instant also.

We can’t confirm this but Google Instant Previews won’t support encrypted Google , much like Encrypted Google won’t support Google Instant.
