Silly little question about link flags

In IE7,whenever I hovered my cursor over a "click here" link in this forum, a flag showed the URL for the link.

Now I'm using IE8 this doesn't happen.

Do I need to switch on something in Internet Options? I've poked about but can't see anything relevant.

Do you find if you move the cursor away and then bring it back again it then shows the url.
Something that I noticed with IE8 I guess, not really sure when I did first notice it to be honest.

Click on the compatibility icon on the address bar.

mooly - no, the url didn't show under any circumstances.

rdave13 - Bingo! That worked. Many thanks.

Perhaps I should have paid more attention to the new features of IE8!!

Thanks to you both for your responses.
