Windows 7: Show text from *specific* programs on taskbar?

Show text from *specific* programs on taskbar?

Is there a way to make only certain programs show their text in the Windows 7 taskbar? Under normal circumstances, I still want to use icon view, but some programs use their title bars to show information that I would like to see. Is there a registry tweak or anything to do this for those specific programs?

I looked through the tutorials but couldn't find anything related to this...
