Disable Taskbar Button Grouping in Windows XP or
Have you ever "lost" a window because it was grouped with other windows in the
taskbar at the bottom of your
Windows XP or Vista PC? Taskbar grouping may be handy for some but for most
it's just an annoyance. Stop Windows from doing this once and for all.
1. Right-click on the Taskbar, the bar that sits on the bottom of the screen,
anchored by the Start button on the left and the clock on the right.
2. Click on Properties in the menu that pops up.
3. Locate the Taskbar appearance options at the top of the window and uncheck
the Group similar taskbar buttons checkbox.
4. Click the OK or Apply button to confirm the changes. If prompted, follow any
additional on screen directions.
