Windows XP and Vista like taskbar button in Windows 7?

This is not a new tip; most of you are already familiar with this. As of Windows 7 the taskbar has been extended significantly with goal of increasing productivity of users. Features like Jump list, grouping, taskbar icon, etc are definitely useful. Now a user can find common tasks, recent and frequent files, alerts, progress notifications, and thumbnails all in one place.

In Windows 7 the taskbar button displays only program icons. Of course it lets you save taskbar space and also looks beautiful, but some times it is bit difficult to recognize what application this icon is representing.

You can easily change this to Windows XP or Vista style. Right click on taskbar – select Properties – and select ‘Combine when taskbar is full’ or ‘Never combine’ option under Taskbar menu and click OK to save. That’s all. If you want, select Use small icons’ to have a small button as in XP or Vista.
