Hello experts !

I have been working with Windows 7 Professional a few monhts now and whenever I pose my mouse over the "E" (Internet) icon they used to appear all the windows I have open for instance "Google", "Wikipedia", "Hotmail", etc., in other words I could see the images of each one of those websites in small size.

Nevertheless since a few days ago whenever I pose my mouse over the "E" icon they appear only the texts of the websites I have open, not the small screens.

What can I do to get back to see the small screens displayed ?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions, best greetings from New York,

Antonio Machado.

Sometimes I have to wait a second for it to add the little screenshots. Other times, if there are too many tabs open, it doesn't show.

Anyone else have any ideas? I'm curious and have no solid answers.

Make sure you have Windows Aero turned on, and then go to System under Control Panel, and open "Advanced System Settings". Go to the "Advanced" tab, and select the Settings button under performance. Try checking "Save taskbar thumbnail preview" and see if that helps.

Hello my friend Themohawkadmin:

Thanks a lot for dedicating time to help me.

I followed the steps you suggested me and now I can see the images of each document of Microsoft Word I have in my taskbar.

Persons just like yourself make this website-forum a great one.

Best greetings from New York,

Antonio Machado.
