    Got a new computer so Win 98 to Vista... I am dial up so I like to have a number of "windows" open so I can read one while other is loading. (feels more like high speed) :)

    Anyway. Vista puts the minimized open windows into a single area on tool bar if I have more then 4 windows open. So I click on that and then look over list to find the window I want.
    Options I get are Cascade/side by side/etc (none of which I like)
    So question. is there any way to make it do things the win 98 way? Just keep scrunching them smaller so a person can go down the line/back to start (like reading) and always have a loaded page?

    Once I figure out more of DVD player I will have questions about that.

    Right click on task bar, select properties. Uncheck "Group similar taskbar buttons". Click Ok.
