    Hello

    What is the workaround if the live taskbar preview did not appear.

    Only the programs are showing up with an icon

    I'm working with win7 ultimate and office 2007.

    Running 8 gb ram and graphic board with 1 gb mem.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Kind regards

    Al

    Are you using an "Aero" desktop theme?

    alread.

    Could you please fill in your computer specs in the UserCP link at the top left hand side of the page.

    Then click Edit Your Details.

    This freeware program will give you all the information you will need:

    SIV (System Information Viewer) 4.03

    This will give us better trouble shooting help

    Right-click om the taskbar, choose properties and select Always Combine, Hide labels.

    Choose Never Combine

    Also you may have to reboot your PC before the changes take effect.

    Has it worked previously OK?

    Do you recall installing any neww software or making any other major changed to your system.

    If it just began, you could try a restore point.
