Missing options

Hello, I have a Compaq notebook and I just recently got the upgrade to 32 7. My friend has a beta version, also 32 bit, and he has options that I do not. On his taskbar when he hovers over a compressed button/folder it will show displays of them. Secondly, when going to personalization to window color, it automatically goes to the advanced version and i cant make it transparent or anything.

Any help? Anything else I may be missing?

Are you talking about the 'thumbnails' that show behind the folder or link when you place the mouse arrow over it?

For the first part of your question, enable Aero Peek on the Taskbar tab of the Start Menu and Taskbar Properties.

Yes. I believe so...

Aeropeek is selected as on, but is not accessible to change.
