Word 2003 not showing individual open document names in the taskbar

I have a user here who is experiencing the following issue: when she has multiple open Word documents,  the application shown in the task bar does not show the names of the multiple Word documents she has open. The title of the task is just the document she has the focus on.

What I've seen in the past, is that if you have, for example, Document1 and Document 2 open, you'll either see them listed on the task bar as 'Document1 - Microsoft Word' and 'Document2 - Microsoft Word'. Or, if you have enough applications open, you'll see '(2) Microsof Officet Word'.
A

Is there a registry key I can change that will get it back to listing the documents individually or by group?

Thanks in advance for your help with this.

Not sure of your OS, so I will show you this link which deals with Windows 2000 and XP;

I have no idea how I missed that (and yes, we're on XP, sorry for missing that detail!).

Thank you!!!
