Windows 7: Any way to get multiple windows to appear on the taskbar the way they-

Any way to get multiple windows to appear on the taskbar the way they-

- used to?

I like the old style, where you can see all windows seperately on the taskbar. Now, with W7, all windows are in one "pane" (for lack of a better way of putting it), and it's kind of annoying when you have 6, and 7 winows oepn.

Is there a way to revert back to the old behaviour? Maybe a pref somewhere?

Thank you!

Multiple Window Icons In Taskbar
Like any other program, when I have multiple windows of word open, there will be the word icon in my taskbar, with however many cascading boxes to the side. Even if I have just two documents open, I prefer to keep them full screen and not tiled. So in order to switch from one document to the next I...
