Hi, welcome to the forums

If you unpin everything from the task bar then right-click it and select 'Properties' you can choose how the icons/apps appear. You're looking to set it to 'Never Combine'

Actually i think, you have turned off Aero by the looks of it.

Right-click on the desktop and go to personalise, where you choose your theme or back ground, pick one from the saved themes.

The first one will have the win 7 background.

Type Advanced into the start box and select 'View advanced system settings' then click the 'Settings' button under Performance

Check to see if 'Enable Aero Peek' is enabled
