Windows 7 and the taskbar

So, we just upgraded to Windows 7 at work (finally). I always keep my taskbar on the right side of the screen, so that I can keep it wide enough to show the filenames. I have the AutoCAD TASKBAR sysvar set to 1. But, windows is stacking the entries, instead of displaying them all down the length of the taskbar. Can I change that?

Okay, wow, I just finally found it... don't know why I didn't see it before...

Right click on taskbar > properties > Taskbar tab (taskbar appearance group) > Taskbar buttons: select 'never combine' from the dropdown.

There I go. I shoulda had a v8.

Unfortunately, no, that's not what I'm going for... nothing to do with the application windows.

I just want the entries in the windows taskbar to appear separately, so the filenames are visible.
