"Group similar taskbar items"

    I run a high resolution (1600 x 1200) and in order to get my taskbar items to group, I need well over a dozen programs open. Rarely do I see them collapse, but often I would like them to. Every day I have multiple IE windows open and I want them to group sooner. Can this be done with a simple registry hack?

    I am guessing that the grouping feature is based on the number of pixels wide the taskbar icons are. Thus, at "standard" resolutions (something most off-the-shelf homeowners use, not the "NTFS.org" crowd. I'm sure most of you use higher resolutions) the icons group at a reasonable size, but at high resolutions they become infinitely small specs before grouping (slight exaggeration but you know what I'm getting at).

    Does anyone know if this is possible? What registry key should I change? Thanks in advance!
