Windows 7 - How to make taskbar "Tab" wider?

Hi everyone. Just reinstalled Win7 64bit on my new Crucial m4 SSD. However....

I have my taskbar set to never combine so that there's no icons.

What I'm looking for:

Example:I want my taskbar to show

|Windows 7 Forums - Post New Thread - Mozilla Firefox|

instead of

|Windows 7 Foru|

Thank you!

Hi, As many of you may know, HP is having a "rough time", to be kind, with their printers fully working with Windows 7. In most cases they just release "generic" print drivers and people with all-in-one printers can not use the scanning, and some other, function because of this. Does...
