Windows 7: Disabling Taskbar Thumbnail Preview with Aero

Disabling Taskbar Thumbnail Preview with Aero

Hi,

I am wondering if it is possible to disable the Thumbnail Previews for the taskbar buttons while still using Aero?

I have taskbar buttons side by side just as in older Windows versions, as in "Never combine", and would like to keep on using Aero, but without the app Thumbnail popup previews.

Thank you.
