Windows 7: Pin to taskbar question

Pin to taskbar question

Hi everyone,

I have W7 Pro on my notebook and I just setup a client with W7 Home.

He has lots of Thunderbird email windows open and when you hover over the Thunderbird icon Pinned in the taskbar, you see each of the opened windows as a small representation of the window.
On my W7 Pro I set it up the same, but each open window is represented by a horizontal line of text.
( much less real-estate and easier on the eye when you have lots of windows open! )

It this a difference between Pro and Home ?
I have looked everywhere for a setting that control this, but cannot find one !

If anyone has any ideas on this I'd really appreciate it...

regards, Dave

Right click on desktop and choose personalize. Are you using an aero theme?

Thanks that was it - I changed to a Non-Aero theme and got the display style I was looking for !

cheers Dave
