Windows 7: Thumbnail Previews don't show upon click

02 Jun 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 - 64 Bit
Thumbnail Previews don't show upon click

Say I have multiple windows open;
Thumbnail Previews don't show upon click-example-1.png

If I click the Explorer icon in my Taskbar it shows to the most recently used explorer window instead of showing the available open windows: Thumbnail Previews don't show upon click-example-2.png

If I then click it again it cycles to the other windows.

What I want to do is make Windows give a thumbnail preview of the open windows upon click.

Thanks :)

Thumbnail Previews
I know Windows 7 comes with thumbnail preview like Windows Vista, but since I installed it it's only given the names of the open programs when I scroll over it versus the thumbnail photo. I didn't change any of these settings and I researched on how to change it. Most say to search "GPEdit.msc" and...
