Show only current tab in IE

When you put you cursor over IE it preview all the tabs in all the windows. Is it possible to make it just show just the one tab for each window.

It does what I want in Firefox but not IE or Opera.

Okay that sort of gains the functionality that I am after.
However the preview is of the first tab and takes you to that tab and not the tab that you were on.
If you click on IE and not hover then it will take you to the current tab.

Can this be changed to make hover the current tab?

As a test, I unchecked "Show previews for individual tabs in the taskbar" restarted IE. worked as it is suppose to. I see a single preview of the current tab I reside on. Why it is not working for you...mystery? Did you restart IE?

Good point I just checked and it is working so it needed to be restarted.

That was one of the steps in the tutorial.

I highlighted it to make it clearer.
