How to display results history

Before I switched to Windows 7 there was a calculator I was using in Vista that was supposed to be the Win7 calc. It looked *very* similar to what I have now in Win7 but there's one glaring difference I can't seem to figure out. How do I get the Win7 calculator to actually show the formula result history in the results window at the top. Each calculation shows it's result in the bottom section with the formula entered in the top section. To see each result I have to click on each of the formulas, one at a time, at the top. I just want to see, for example, "1+1=2" at the top rather than "1+1" and then "2" at the bottom. That way I can see a running list of the results to reference back to all at once.

History allows me to see a running list of the functioned entered, but not with their associated results.
