Default Any way to just show icons in the taskbar?

I want to clean my task bar up when there's many apps open. Is there any way to just show icons? I know you can 'group' the similar apps together down there, but i have several seperate applications open. Is this possible? Some sort of hack or something?

yeah, if some of your programs have tray icons then you can go to the options in that program and select "remove taskbar icon when minimized" option. When you minimize the program it will disappear from the taskbar and just be in the system tray. or if that isn't an option, you can always auto-hide the taskbar so you don't have to see it all the time.....lol
