Taskbar Icon Preview

I have a question about the windows 7 task bar . I took a screen shot to help with the diagnosis. Anyway, whenever I hover over an icon on the left side of the taskbar, any windows I have open , whether its one or many, will be shown as preview windows. I want to know where to go to disable it.



Thanks

Thanks, I used the registry merge option. I typically could of done this without asking as I have before, but I'm preparing my CCNA studies and time is limited. Test in less than two weeks!
