    Take a look at this thread in the Microsoft community. Maybe one of those suggestions can help.

    But first try resetting your thumbnail cache by using Disk Cleanup(or CCleaner if you have it) and clear the cache.

    I try with Ccleaner and i try with gpedit.msc, but doesn't works ... and gpedit.msc won't create snap-in.

    Just for troubleshooting purposes, does Aero peek work? When you move your mouse on the taskbar all the way to the right side of the clock, it should hide all open windows and just show your desktop background and icons.

    I can't really think of anything else that might help, sorry.
    Maybe someone else will come along, and with this information, find an answer.
    Basically AERO Peek is working, and your thumbnail preview on the taskbar is working, but not showing the window on the desktop, when you place the cursor on the thumbnail preview.

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I think it is close-

    Once the cursor is on one of tiny previews it will expand to full screen-

    I think Cliff S covered this.
    I just woke up.
    My brain needs more coffee.

    Have you tried this-

    Put cursor on empty space in Taskbar & right click & click Properties.

    Then enable Peek-

    This may have already been covered too.

    I am out of ideas.
