Hello Kentucky, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but a taskbar icon must have the focus remain on it to see it's thumbnail preview. If you change the focus to something else, the thumbnail preview will stop.

You might consider having the Windows Media Center window set to a smaller size and moved to a corner of your screen, then have your browser window opened at another part of the screen. This way you could have both opened and viewable at the same time.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Or better yet, keep the Media Centre Window on top at all times ...
