Windows 7: Requesting batch file to uncombine taskbar buttons

Requesting batch file to uncombine taskbar buttons

Hi,

I go to school at the University of New Hampshire and we have Windows 7 installed on all computers. One very annoying feature is the combining of taskbar buttons and these computers never save settings, even though we have to login. It would be much easier to have a batch file than to keep changing the setting each time I login.

How do I go about doing this?

Keep taskbar buttons but don't combine?
Hey guys, Loving windows 7 so far. The only gripe I have is I'd like to find a way to use buttons and not labels on the taskbar without combining - for example, if I'm using multiple firefox browsers, it collapses into the same icon. I'd prefer to have different icons for each different browser...

Taskbar Buttons
Is there a way to move the taskbar buttons around? Like to the middle for example. I tried moving my firefox to the right of the taskbar but it shot back to where it previously was.
