Windows suddenly stopped showing the screen of the running programme.

Hi,

This is just a minor thing but I really want to get it fixed.

Recently I bought a new laptop dell xps15 and its windows 7 home premium 64bit.

I really like it and its got some really special function.

For example when you put your mouse cursor on the icon on the taskbar, it shows you the screen of that programme in a small window box.

But now that function is gone. Instead it looks like this:



does anyone know how to fix it?

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks
