Windows 7: Taskbar list the number of grouped windows like XP?

Taskbar list the number of grouped windows like XP?

On my taskbar button settings I have it set to

'Combine when the taskbar is full'

I like this because it still shows the name of the app open and I dont always want it to group it. But something that bothers me is that on XP when it would group them, it listed the number of windows it had open in the taskbar.

I play a lot of online poker and I play a lot of tables at once and with that number I could always tell how many tables I have open but now with Win 7 I can't figure out how to get it to list the number of windows open in a grouped application.

Is there a way to get this to work?

edit: here found a pic of what I am talking about in case I am not clear

Not that I'm aware of at the moment. Someone may come up with something though.
