msthumbnailclick

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The msthumbnailclick event occurs when a user clicks a button or thumbnail icon in the taskbar.

This proprietary method is specific to Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

addEventListener Method object.addEventListener("msthumbnailclick", handler, useCapture)
