Display Program, Folder Name As Text In Windows 7 Taskbar

You might have notice that sometimes when you open too many applications in your system having windows 7, such as many word files, PDF files and many windows of the browsers, then in Windows 7 their titles are not displayed when they are minimized to task bar. Hence, it is not at all easy to find and recognize which word file or which PDF file to open again and continue working. This is because in Windows 7, the labels present on the taskbar icons are always hidden by default. Although, this particular feature along with the ability to group icons as you may have observe, is basically designed in order to allow more and more program icons to remain pinned or minimized in the taskbar. The labels also provide the facility of displaying all the real time updates on the taskbar such as title of the playing song in music players, download progress etc. But in this process one of the disadvantages that is there is whenever more than one window of an application is open, such as two or three browser window or explorer window, it requires more clicks to select and open the program.
