How to Get Taskbar Thumbnails On

Hi All:

I have Windows 7 Home Premium and there is no gpedit.msc for this version. How to I turn "on" the thumbnails in my version?

Thanks,

Hi logicearth, Mike and James:

Many thanks for the quick reply. Your suggestions worked perfectly and I have my thumbnails back.
