    I finally upgraded from windows vista today, and am now missing 2 features I previously enjoyed having. First being win+Tab. That doesn't seem to work for me, yet it seems it should.

    The other thing I'm missing is that before I could place my mouse over a window on the taskbar and it would display a small preview of the window.

    I don't care if I sound like a retard, lol.... I just want to know if there is a way to get those features again....
