The "Use Aero Peel to preview the desktop" option is grayed out (disabled) on my taskbar properties. Why is this?

Hi guest
You need to have the "Aero" running for the "Peek at desktop" to be live. Click anywhere on your desktop then click "Personalize" the click on any one of the Aero themes and "Peek at desktop" will work.

Hope this helps
