Scrolling between open windows

Hi everyone I have just stumbled on a annoance in Vista ( what just 1 was the cry) , I had to reinstall Vista Ultimate because the original installation fell over when trying to install SP1 anyway in that original install any open windows I could press the middle mouse button on get a visual list of open windows and use the scroll whell of the mouse to "jump" from one to another ,now with this new install if I do the same thing I get small windows appearing all together of my the open windows how can I get back to the "scrolling " effect.

Thanks for your time and any replies
Cheers for now

It sounds as if Aero is turned off go to control panel-personalization-windows color and appearance-open classic appearance and turn on Aero.

Try clicking on the task bar icon: 'switch between windows' if you are in Aero and its working then this should start document flip.

If this works maybe you need to re-programme your mouse button. Failing this go to start help and enter: document flip lots of advice comes up.
