    Taskbar


    Hello!


    On the taskbar, I have one icon for each application, Excel, Word, e.g. When I hover my mouse over the application icon, I can see all of my open files and they appear as little windows showing the contents of each file. Is there a way I can change the view from little windows of my open files to a list of file names stacked on top of each other when I hover my mouse over the application icon?

    :)
