    Ok i solved.

    1 open regedit (key "win + r" and type regedit)
    2 navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
    3 change value of key "DisablePreviewWindow" from 1 to 0.
    4 log off and log in again
    5 all done

    If you want i can attach a file .reg, but i can't see this option

    Thanks to Cliff S and David Bailey.

    I find the idea on the sevenforum this link Taskbar Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Help Forums, but nothing help. Only the reg file give an idea.

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