    Program Thumbnail Preview feature of taskbar not working in windows 7

    Generally when you scroll your mouse pointer over your taskbar on opened program, it shows you the Thumbnail preview of that opened program but my windows 7 computer is not doing that. I don’t know why but I am not able to sort out this problem. I have checked some setting from control menu and everything looks fine. Do you have any idea, what is happening? What should I do to solve this issue?

    hii

    If your computer windows is not able to show the thumbnail preview of any opened program when you scroll your mouse pointer over your taskbar on the opened program then i am telling you what to do ...

    You have to just follow these steps given below ... :

    - Firstly open control panel from the start menu or from my computer
    - There in the control panel search box type troubleshooter and then click on option saying troubleshooting
    - Then you have to click on display aero desktop effects which you will find under the option appearance and personalization ..
    - After clicking on display aero desktop effects you will be prompted to enter administrator password or give a confirmation ...So , give password there or confirm....

    Restart your computer and i am sure now your problem will be solved ..

    thanks

    Thumbnail preview will not work if your system has not aero compatible or aero is disabled

    Check whether your system has aero compatibility or not
    • Open start menu
    • Type "Windows Experience Index" in search and press enter
    • Now check your computer score if it is '3' or more than your system in compatible with aero themes
    Now check if aero is enabled or not ::
    • Right click on task bar and click on properties
    • Now in the bottom check the box "Use aero peak to preview the desktop"
    • Click OK
    • Now check if thumbnail preview is enabled or not
    If aero has no problem then follow these steps
    • Right click on "My computer" and go to properties
    • In the left side click on advanced system settings
    • Click on settings under performance tab
    • Now check the box ( if it is unchecked ) "Show thumbnails instead of icons" and click OK
    • Now go to any folder or drive and change your view to large icons and minimize it
    • Check in task bar if thumbnail preview is enabled
