how can I get programs that are open in Windows 7 to appear as rectangles in task bar

In Windows 7 Pro, when you have a program open, that program appears as a "box" in the Windows 7 task bar.  In Windows XP, open progams appear as a rectangle and this rectangle includes text (like if you have Work open - the rectangle would include Microsoft Word....).

How do I get open programs to as rectangles in the Windows 7 taskbar with the text that tells what program is open?

Thanks for your help.
