Windows 7: I like the open item list from the Taskbar

I like the open item list from the Taskbar

Hello,

I was reading here that someone did not like the downward list of open items from the taskbar, but preferred a "pane" for each open Window. I have just the opposite problem. When I have "too many" Windows open in IE, it displays them as a list as shown in his picture, which I have attached for clarity. I would like ALL of my programs to do this at ALL times, regardless of whether I have 1 or 20 windows open. Is there a way to set windows to display this way?

Hello Juan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Using a Basic or Classic theme instead of a Aero theme will have this way for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks, Shaw, I will try that...

Shawn,

Thank you very much; I do not think I will lose that much wthout the "Aero" Theme, so I will try the classic one.

Take good care,

Juan

You're welcome Juan. You can also use a Basic theme if the Classic one is to old style for you.
