Disable Group Popup On Taskbar

Is there any way to disable this popup that gets triggered when hovering?

I have grouping disabled, and I find that the grouping popup gets in the way when I'm trying to do other things near the taskbar. I generally don't run more than 8-10 programs on the taskbar at a time so I don't find this feature necessary.

Thanks for any tips!

Anyone have any ideas? I haven't seen anything in the policy editor that might fix this, and I'm not sure where to even start looking in the registry.

Was this issue ever resolved? I've been searching the internet for a solution, myself.

Nope, unfortunately.

Gah, never mind, I thought it went away after but it didn't. I just can't find anything anywhere that fixes the problem, it's very counter productive. :(

Finally! I found a solution!

It also lets you customize a lot of other things about the Taskbar. No more will those mysterious popup lists keep interfering with my productivity!!!!
