Show Taskbar Icons for Every Open Window in Windows 7

Don't allow yourself to be limited to one program icon on the Windows 7 taskbar.


by Avram Piltch, Online Editorial Director on October 1, 2009

Unlike Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7 comes configured to show only a single icon (with no descriptive text) in the Taskbar for each open application, as opposed to one icon for each open Window. This setup saves space on the Taskbar, but makes it hard to tell what you have open, and to distinguish between open applications and pinned shortcuts.

  • To give each open window its own icon, complete with descriptive text, right-click on the Taskbar and select Properties. Choose Never Combine from the Taskbar Buttons pulldown menu, then click OK.
