Windows 7: Win7 Taskbar Help

Win7 Taskbar Help

Need help with a task bar setting in Win7.

I am very used to WinXP taskbar. If I have 50 Outlook emails open, each email shows up as an iCon and subject of the email when I click on the stack.

In Win7, I hate that it shows me an image of all the emails. Cant really see anythign in that small view and want to diable it. i.e. want my task bar to behave just like XP.

Same goes for Excel, Word, etc. If 10 documents open, I just want to Alt Tab and see an iCon with the name of the doc and go it or see a stack of icons from the task bar and choose by name.

Will appreciate any help to return back to XP theme.

How do I pin a website to the taskbar in Win7?
The way I used to pin an icon to the taskbar was to first send a website icon to my desktop, using Win7 and IE10. Then I click and drag the icon to the taskbar, where it resides as a stand-alone icon. Recently it does not do this. Instead when I drag the icon to the taskbar it says "Pin to Internet...
