Change to Vista style taskbar selected icon?

Hi all,

What Windows 7 does is for whatever window is currently selected from the taskbar, it appears highlighted compared to the others that are not in use.

Example:


Is there a way to change this back to the Vista style, where the opened window is "depressed" and darker than the others, like below?



Thanks!

Also, is there any way to move the hidden icons taskbar triangle to the right of the icons, as well as changing the brightness an icon when it flashes on the taskbar?

I've done pretty much everything already from those links, they don't mention anything on how to change the way the icons on the taskbar react when they're opened. Nothing on the brightness of a flashing window either.
