How do I sort out annoying task bar

  erkmatrix 16:53 23 Aug 2006

On my old PC that had windows xp home my browsers and any application I was working on used to be displayed in single apps across the task bar and then go to a second page after it had shrunk as many as it could on the first screen.

Now it for some reason stacks them in a box where you click it and it shows you all the different apps in the box, like firefox browser pages all stacked up. I don't like this but can't seem to find out how to get it back to how I had it on my old machine which I preferred, is this cause its a new version of windows home and you can't do this anymore.

Anyone know

You can always drag the taskbar up a notch or two.

And I forgot to mention you can also drag it to the side of the screen.
