Vista - Preview Windows in Task Bar

How do I get this to work?  The taskbar setting to show window previews (thumbnails) is already checked.  But, if I put my mouse over one of the open windows it only displays the title of the program open.  I am running Vista Basic edition.  I am not sure if this is on a different version.


thank you for any help!

Re: Vista - Preview Windows in Task Bar

Unfortunately BASIC does not support this feature.

The thumbnail previews on the ALT-TAB screen and the TASKBAR are for Home Premium and up.  You need the WINDOWS AERO package which BASIC does not support.
