XP taskbar

    Just got Windows XP at work but am having some bother with the taskbar grouping windows together :(

    With NT I had the taskbar twice normal height and had a task for each window I had open...can I do that with XP? I can resize the toolbar no problem but it's pointless as it's grouping all outlook an IE windows together....a major PITA as I have half a dozen 3270 screens open most of the time. XP takes two mouse movements and two clicks to switch window where NT only needed one :mad:

    Don't tell me - you'll get Vista at work when Windows 2020 is released. :D

    If we are lucky we'll get Vista this century! (although TBH I prefered the 3270 emulator we has on Win 3.1...everything since has been a downgrade IMO. I've never had the pleasure of a dumb terminal.)

    Thanks for the info guys...will check it out tomorrow.

    Dumb terminals weren't exactly exciting! The first ones I used at work were amber on black, and not much fun to use. Then we got green on black....
    PC 3270 was a huge improvement, and now we too have a web-based emulator. It's OK, actually, but there's virtually nothing left on the mainframe now.

    And we're still on Win 2K, with no prospect of Xp for some time yet!

    We're not allowed a PC 3270 anymore as folk were storing passwords in macros :mad: I can't even remap keys with web 3270 on XP as I'd need full admin rights on the PC to be able to do that :( The mainframe here keeps getting bigger(biggest in Europe?).....just gotta watch out for those Indian dudes wanting my job!!

    Thanks again for the info chaps. My taskbar is cluttered once more :D
