    Problem! Thumbnail windows in taskbar dissapear


    Hello

    I have some trouble with thumbnail windows in tasks bar. A few days ago, maybe after official last windows update, but not sure, I found a very vexing bug in task bar. When I hover on task bar icons, the thumbnail windows pop-up and when I hover in it all the preview windows is goind under the opened windows but the thumbnail windows is still accessible so I even can close it but I can't see it. It's very inconvenient especially with couple of opened windows.

    Here I attached a screen

    How to solve it? Maybe I need to edit reg but what exactly?

    I have the exact same problem. The same issue extends to the Alt-Tab windows as well, it pops under all of the open windows. It seems to have started with the new Windows 8.1 Update 1.

    Edit: It's curious that it does NOT pop under metro apps so I think it may be caused by this new functionality in Windows 8.1 U1. This occurs on both my laptop and desktop which share no common hardware.

Yes, IE is only showing thumbnails on the desktop icon on the taskbar. I can't get it to show the proper window at all! It used to be OK. I'm sure it's something obvious. Any ideas?
