Windows 7: Windows 7 Toolbar

Windows 7 Toolbar

Howdy! When I scroll over an icon in the toolbar, I only get written information and not big thumbnails like it normally should be. How can I change it to look like the picture below?



Hope you get the question.

Hope you get the question.
Maybe in System=>Advanced=> Performance options, you have disable/uncheck a box about the desktop management...?

Exactly. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like.

I've tested the uncheck box and check it again...I've got this result when it is uncheck...!!!

Are you sure you're in the right tab, in the Perfomance Options in advanced tab of the system properties.

Control Panel=>System=>System Protection=>Advanced Parameters=>Performances=>Parameters....there's a list of boxes...

Maybe that is program specific. After you posted that problem, I checked my own toolbar icons. And I have one program that does exactly the same - but only that one. And with another program, hovering over the taskbar icon shows nothing when the program is minimized. I will have a look in program properties whether there is anything specific to those programs.
