Go to advanced system settings. Under Performance, click 'Settings'. Under Visual Effects/Custom, uncheck: 'Show window contents while dragging'. Click Apply and OK.

However, that checkbox may already be unchecked. If so, uncheck the box 'Use visual styles on windows and buttons'. That makes Windows 7 look like XP to some extent, but so what.

That should at least get rid of the large icon, which I could not stand. It may not give you "details".
