Windows 7: Right click menu on programs in the taskbar

Right click menu on programs in the taskbar

In Vista and older versions, if I right clicked on a program in the taskbar I could then move the mouse up ever so slightly to click "close."

Now there is a weird little "box" that pops up instead of a menu, and I have to move my mouse significantly further to get to "close." Sounds trivial, but if I am shutting down several applications in a row it is much slower this way.

Is there a way to return the right click menu to normal?

Nice! Thanks. No way to make that the default right-click behavior?

No problem, thanks again anyway. Shift will work well enough!
