Open Control Panel > Performance Information and Tools > Adjust Visual Effects.
Ensure that the Enable Aero Peek box is checked.
Also ensure that:
- Enable desktop composition &
- Use visual styles on windows and buttons

Better still, select Let Windows choose what’s best for my computer and click Apply/OK.
