Setup Taskbar buttons: "Never combine + hide labels" ?

When I right click on the Win7 taskbar and choose Properties then I have 3 ways to configure the taskbar buttons in the drop down menu:

- Always combine, hide labels
- Combine when taskbar is full
- Never combine

I miss: "Never combine, hide labels"

Can I achieve this otherwise?
