Windows 7: Need to change taskbar settings

Need to change taskbar settings

Picture pretty much says it all. I still get the thumbnail preview when mousing over the icons, but I would like to change it back so that all the similar icons are grouped into together to save room on the task bar.

BTW: This either happened from SP1 beta or some option I ticked while making a custom install disk.

Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable

Right click the task bar and press properties. Then Beside "Taskbar Buttons:" drop down menu press Always Combine, Hide Labels. I think this is what you mean.
Hope this helps!

Thanks. It worked and was an easy fix. A little too easy . Now that summer is pretty much done here, I should have more time to get back into computer related things.
