Windows 7: Taskbar icons disappearing when window is moved off screen?

Taskbar icons disappearing when window is moved off screen?

Recently with items pinned to my Quickbar, when a window is open and moved off screen the quick-launch shortcut is removed (so that when you hover over the quickbar icon, nothing displays). Normally you can always see the "shortcut" display of any window of that type open.

In my opinion this is a great feature which allows me to remove clutter on the taskbar while still keeping the window open.

This "feature" isn't working right now (i.e. no matter where the window is, minimized or off screen the "shortcut" display on the quickbar always displays it), and I was wondering if Windows was bugged, or if this is a toggle-able feature.

Thanks

Interesting thought

I looked into your suggestion and found Aero to be functioning correctly on my system. I looked into other Aero features and options along that track and didn't find anything to change or allow windows to disappear from the quickbar when dragged off screen.

Thank you for your comment, but in my case it wasn't the solution.
