Windows 7: How do I change the look of the pinned items?

How do I change the look of the pinned items?

For example, when I move the cursor over a pinned item, it used to show a miniturized window of that item hovering next to the cursor. However, now when I do it, it just shows text of what is open rather than the mini window. I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I looked around and could not find answer. Oh, and also, my start orb is no longer an orb but rather an actual button (Windows 98ish style). Thanks in advance!

Hello ezwind, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like you are using a "Windows Classic" theme instead of a "Aero" theme. If this is the issue, then changing your theme to a "Aero" theme may fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
