How to Never Combine and Hide Labels on the Taskbar

The Windows 7 and Windows 8 Taskbar is missing a view that permits open apps to appear as separate icons without their descriptive text.

You can add this, by changing the behavior of the Never Combine Hide Labels option.



1.  Open Registry Editor by typing regedit into Start Menu search box.

2. To do this, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics registry key.

3. Create a string value called MinWidth with the value "54".



You will need to sign out and back in again for this change to appear.



If you are using desktop scaling on your PC change the value appropriately (e.g., for 150% scaling use 72, and for 125% scaling use the value 63).
