Always Combine, Show labels

This is driving me mad. I want to use the combined feature with the icons labeled but cant figure it out. In windows xp I liked the group tasks feature that would group the applications together.

I know this. What I want is that option but to have it show the label. For instance the Firefox icon will say "Firefox" next to it.

If you select "never combine" you'll get this below.
If that's not what you want, someone else may come along with a better answer.

AFAIK, there is no always combine but show labels option. I just Alt-Tab to switch programs though, so I don't bother with the taskbar half the time.

Never combine, hide labels when taskbar is full?
Pretty much the title. I know there's a way to make the taskbar buttons not combine and not show labels, but I figured there's no need to hide those labels until I have no more room left in the taskbar. So, does anyone know if this is possible? Thanks.

Tasbar Icons - Hide Labels, Never Combine
Sorry if this is already been posted, I did a search and couldn't find it. A lot of of people seem to be wanting to have the labels on the taskbar buttons hidden but without combining. This option is not availble in the settings. Here is all you have to do: Run Registry Editor (RegEdit)....

never combine, hide labels. . .
In the taskbar control panel, is there any way to add the option to hide the labels (ie, in this case "Windows 7 Forums -..." but NOT to group 'similar' items, so each firefox window has it's own, non-overlapping button? Thanks as always! Russell
