Changing taskbar options to see how many windows are open

Hello,everybody!

Basically,i can't find where and how to change this.For example,on my windows xp when i opened multiple windows from same type they got squeezed and on taskbar you could see exact number of these windows...But on windows 7 they only get squeezed but without any real visible number,and I would really like to see this number as this is very important for me )
Thank you!

Hello Poliandrs, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think you may be wanting to set the taskbar to Never combine as in the tutorial below.

Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn
