How to prevent grouping of similar buttons on taskbar?


If you open too many applications, buttons of similar application tend to group together. For example, buttons of 5 windows of Internet Explorer are grouped as one and so on. While some find this convenient, it can be annoying for other users. You can easily enable or disable grouping option for either single or grouped placement as shown in image below.


Disable grouping of similar buttons

1. Right click on taskbar & click properties option.
2. Uncheck (no tick) next to ‘Group similar taskbar buttons’.


From now on, none of the window will group and all will show individually for easy access. You can check (or tick) the group option to view similar taskbar buttons in grouped manner.
