Aero peek not working correct.

Hi guys, so i just noticed that my aero peek wont work liek it was about 2 days ago. You guys know how normally if you hover over an icon with multiple windows open, it will display them right?

well now i have to click the icon and then it brings up the other windows?
how do i fix that? Like it wont show me the other windows unless i click the main icon, if i hover over the icon nothing shows up.

how would i fix this? i dont remember changing any settings.

NVM, got it. I just remade the reg file and it worked fine. Somehow it got deleted.

Also, if you right click the show desktop bar on the very right, there is a switch ("peek at desktop") to turn aero peek (at least the hover function on the show desktop icon part) on and off. I actually seem to prefer it off as my cursor seems to end up in that corner more often than I'd realized. When I want to see or show the desktop, I just click the show desktop bar instead now.
