Aero Peek

i have a problem with a feature i believe is called aero peek. when i move the cursor over an application in the taskbar it shows an earlier state of the window from when i last opened it. i have to actually click on the window and open it up to see what it really looks like at this moment.

can i force seven to keep aero peek views up to date for all windows?

hm...I might be wrong on this but only certain things will be rendered in full time on Thumbnail Preview (I think that is what it is really called...). It could also depend on the app.

+1 it depends on whether or not the app is mimimised when viewing the 'Thumbnail Preview'. Most, if not all apps will show the 'last known state' as a preview unless not minimised.

The option is greyed out. I had it working before I formated my SSD and reinstalled windows on it. Should I reinstall windows again and see if that helps it?
