Normally, I'd agree with something like this, but given the accepted solution, it was just to change a minor annoyance, rather than disable the enhanced UI altogether.

Indeed it might have been using a shotgun to kill an ant.

But he did say he preferred the Win95 looks. I can't understand how or why, but then again...

Issue:

A taskbar button represents an open window on the desktop. These buttons appear on the taskbar as a horizontal bar button or a icon button. This will show you how to have similar taskbar open window buttons to group to one button or not in Windows 7.

Solution:

1. Right click on a empty area of the taskbar and click on Properties.

OR

2. Click on the Start button and click on Properties.

3. Click on the drop down arrow menu to the right of Taskbar buttons.

4. To Always Group Taskbar Buttons -
NOTE:
Any taskbar buttons for the same program or window will always be grouped to one icon button.

A) Click on Always combine, hide labels to select it.
B) Go to step 7.

5. To Only Group Taskbar Buttons when the Taskbar is Full -
NOTE:
Any taskbar buttons for the same program or window will be grouped to one icon button when the taskbar runs out space for the buttons.

A) Click on Combine when taskbar is full to select it.
B) Go to step 7.

6. To Never Group Taskbar Buttons -
NOTE:
Open window taskbar buttons will remain as separate buttons on the taskbar and not be grouped together.

A) Click on Never combine to select it.

7. Click on OK.


Reference: Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable

Mine rarely moves off of zero on several systems. The video card's GPU is used to render the objects on screen, instead of asking the CPU to do it. Consider how a game works. The game's .exe is a running Windows task, but the video card processes the 3D work, rather than make the CPU do all tasks alone. The same concept applies to Aero.

You must have a more modern system than me but then again everyone does,lol. I was just curious because disabling DWM causes one to lose the Aero fluff and stuff. I personally don't have it disabled and kinda like the enhancements of it but I do notice the extra load that it has on my ancient laptop.
