    This feature can be enabled in Windows XP as well, all you need is the freeware Visual Tooltip. This freeware creates thumbnails for the taskbar which can positioned as you like and it can also replace your taskbar. Visual Tooltip makes it possible to show a thumbnail of a window by putting the mouse cursor over a button of the taskbar.

    Download Visual Tootip
