IE6 'condenses' open browsers on the task bar but I want my open browsers to
all be viewable on the task bar, like in win98.

How please.

Also,
I got use to using 'ctrl alt delete' for restarts in win 98. XP doesnt so
this. How do I restart using a simple keyboard command in xp?

Thanks.

Restart: Windows key + U + R

Clarification: Windows key + U + R will restart if no windows are open.
Otherwise, Windows Key + U will open the Utility Manager.

Sorry, that's not correct either.
Utility Manager will start if you press Windows key + U quickly without
pausing slightly.

Windows Key=the Start menu.
U="Turn off computer" window
R=Restart option.
So: Windows Key <pause> + U + R = Restart.

Sorry about the confusion folks.

Right-click on an empty area of taskbar, select Properties, uncheck
"Group similar taskbar buttons".

Hi,

1. Right click the Taskbar, Properties and uncheck Group similar taskbar
items.
2. Copy the line below to Notepad, name it and save with a JS extension.
(new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application")).ShutdownWindows();
