On my Windows 8 machine, I'm using VirtualBox and have pinned it's icon to the taskbar. With it I can create virtual machines, and can pin shortcuts to individual virtual machines on the taskbar.

But, all of these shortcuts have the same icon and I can't distinguish one from the other.

I'd like to see text with the icons on the taskbar so I can tell them apart.

Is is possible, how do I turn text on?

Thanks very much.

I found this related question, but the solution doesn't seem to make any difference on Windows-8. –  Scott Langham Sep 3 '13 at 12:36
