If you have ever used Windows XP, you will see the Taskbar shows both the icon and the application name. This type of display is very convenient because the application occupies a relatively wide width on the Taskbar to show the information of the application has just been reduced to wrong Click to another application.

From later versions such as Windows 7, 8 or 10, this way of displaying is still present but default will only display the icon on the Taskbar. The only display icon is ok because it looks neat but it is easier to click the wrong application to the side and if you open many Office Office, the Taskbar still shows only one icon which sometimes makes it difficult when you switch to File other.

With customizable display both of icons and names of applications on the Taskbar will help you more comfortable opening applications from the Taskbar and especially you will transfer File Office easier.
