But, on my laptop with win7 whenever I hovered over that I would get a small preview window.
Both are win7 but my laptop is an Acer and my desktop is an ASUS. does that make a difference? If so how can I make it show me a preview window?
I googled this and found a site that told me to go "computer>settings>advanced system settings>advanced>performance settings" and this is the default that came up. does this help?

Looks like you have Windows 7 Basic theme. To change and get aero (including taskbar thumbnails) go to Control Panel -> Personalize and choose a theme in the aero or installed themes sections, not the basic and high contrast group. You can also get to it with right-click on desktop -> Personalize.
