Minimized programs not showing up on taskbar

Hey guys I am new to this forum, and recently any programs I minimize won't show up on the taskbar, but if I alt-tab it'll show back up. I tried google for answers but I could not find anything. Any help could be appreciated. Thanks

The taskbar Preview of Minimized Windows
Hi Guys I'm sure many of you would know what I am talking about. In Windows 7 when you minimize a window, it gets down onto the taskbar. But if you HOVER over it, it'll show you a little preview of the content of that particular window. How do I stop that from happening ? Thanks
