Taskbar Issue

In other versions of Windows, each open/running application is assigned a
button on the taskbar. As additional applications are opened, the size of
the button in the taskbar shrinks to make room for all buttons. In XP I've
noticed that similar applications are grouped together in one button (for
example, all Internet Explorer windows) when the number of buttons on the
taskbar reaches a certain capacity. Then the taskbar lists the button by
application (e.g., Internet Explorer) and a number of windows running that
application. I must click on that button and then scroll up and click on the
desired window to view it. Can I change a setting in XP to allow the taskbar
to display more buttons? Thanks in advance.

- Right click the taskbar
- Click 'Properties'
- Uncheck 'Group similar taskbar buttons'

Thanks, I didn't realize it was that simple.
