Windows 7: Disabled Thumbnail Preview - Can't Re-Enable It

Disabled Thumbnail Preview - Can't Re-Enable It

Hey guys...I disabled thumbnail preview in Windows 7 previously and I now can't figure out how to re-enable it. When I hover over an icon on the taskbar I now just see the title whatever the icon refers to, but not a picture of the window itself. How can I re-enable it? I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium, so no GPedit.msc.

I tried Folder Options --> View --> Unchecked 'Always Show Icons, Never Thumbnails" - Didn't work

I also tried 'Save Taskbar Thumbnail Previews' under Advanced System Performance Settings - also no luck.

FIXED: I disabled Windows Desktop Manager accidentally.
