Windows 7: Restore taskbar thumbnail preview that was in IE8?

Restore taskbar thumbnail preview that was in IE8?

Anyone know how to restore the taskbar thumbnail preview that was in IE8? I have the setting for "Show previews for individual tabs in the taskbar" set, but it only shows text when you hover over the IE icon in the taskbar, not the thumbnail view I prefer from IE8.
Is this anything to do with the Windows7 Aero settings?

Hello Andy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, you would have to be using a Aero theme to have thumbnail previews of the icons for opened windows on the taskbar.

In addition, you might also check the tutorial below to see what your list mode threshold limit is set at. If to low, this would display a list instead of thumbnail view as well.

Hope this helps,

Thanks, yes it was the Aero Theme settings. For some reason this had been disabled where it was set previously. Only seemed to change after I had installed IE9, strange.
