Windows 7: Mini Pop Up screen on taskbar

Mini Pop Up screen on taskbar

When I used to slide my mouse over the "e" for my internet explorer, it would show me a mini screen of what I was viewing. Now it shows a rectangular text box only telling me what is in it. What happened to that mini screen? How do I get it back? I loved that thing!
