Windows 7 mouse over on a taskbar icon

#1
When I mouse over on an active icon in the taskbar, say internet explorer. I get text that pops up instead of an icon showing what I have opened. Is there a way to change this from a text popup to a window icon pop up?

Thanks

Turn on Aero interface !



1. Right click on the Start button and click on Properties, or right click on any empty space on the Taskbar and click on Properties.

2. Go to the Taskbar tab.

3. To turn on Desktop Preview, check and tick the Use Desktop Preview checkbox.



Click on OK.

Also, if you have too many IE windows/tabs open, there will be only titles instead of previews. :)

I do not have anything that says desktop preview. my desktop computer has no problem, but with my laptop i just get the titles.

Not do I but, fwiw, Do you have Aero running?. Taskbar window previews won't work unless your computer is running Windows Aero. Aero is not available in Windows 7 Home editions.
