Taskbar right click XP style

I tried to find this here cause i remember finding it here in the first place i think, (many years ago) but i couldnt now, so how or what was the trick to get Win7 task bar act like XP?

Meanin this:
Taskbar right click XP style-taskbar-classic-right-click.jpg



instead of this


Taskbar right click XP style-instead.jpg




Also, i am not sure if this same trick enabled the "right click close" feature, that was also in XP but some reason not in Win7 ... meaning that you dont have to use mouse left button to close the windows on task bar but also the right button does that.
