Windows 7 taskbar preview not working

In my windows 7, if I open multiple explorer windows and if all are minimized, hovering mouse on task bar does not show the preview. The preview shows only for 1 second and then it vanishes. Any Solution? Thanks in advanced.

Update Icons in Taskbar preview windows
