    Hi Lorenzo welcome to the forums.
    Do you mean when you mouse over the thumbnails, that, it is not showing the open window on the desktop?

    Thanks Cliff

    Yes exactly.

    Show only little preview but not open windows on desktop.

    I try to check all option in Option folder under visualization tab.

    Thanks

    I just looked too, but didn't see anything. Does clicking the thumbnail at least bring the window to the front or to the desktop?

    Note: I'm using Windows 10 now and yours might be a little different.

    Oh! I just thought of something, you might want to check your settings in "Ease of Access" too.

    Under "Ease of access" in "easier viewing" (i have Windows in Italian language) section there aren't option check.

    Other thing: In Sistem Property under Advanced tab and under Performance ---> Visual effect i have all check.
