In Windows 7 when I click on a "child" window I'd like to be able to bring all of the windows in that group forward... is there a way to do this?

For example, I have Outlook open and also two emails. So I hover my mouse over the task bar icon for Outlook, Aero shows me the thumbnail of Outlook and the two open emails.  I choose one of the emails.  The only thing that comes forward is the email. So when I get finished with the email and close it, I am left with whatever application was the focus before I brought the email to the front.  If I want the other email,  I have to go back to the task bar and select it and do the same thing and then again for Outlook itself. I know that I can do ALT-TAB, but it would be nice to just have all the open windows in a group right there.  Is this something that is configurable in Windows 7?

Yes, that would be a nice feature but unfortunately not available.

Sorry.
