Windows 7: Help-How pin more shortcut per group

Help-How to diplay more pinned shortcuts per group

I use Excel a lot, i have about 25 files shortcuts that I use frequently and i need to pin to the taskbar. I am using the grouping method and i like it a lot.

Currently I have reached the max i can see when i right-click on my Excel Application on the taskbar. I have 19 Excel files pinned, when i pin 1 more, #20 goes to the bottom of the list and I can't see it. If i remove one, then #20 shows up.....this is not a screen limitation bc the list displayed only uses 2/3 of my screen height. so there is a lot more screen to expand onto.

Is there a way to increase the number of pinned shortcuts that i can see on my screeen when i right-click on the taskbar button?

How about putting the shortcuts in a folder then pin the folder or add it as a Toolbar. Toolbar might be preferable.
