to keep the Programm-Icons there and seperate the running programms. (also at the same time)

To start, I have tasbar located on the left, small icons, never combine:

Then, I have enabled Quick Launch toolbar (Quick Launch - Enable or Disable). You can change the Quick Launch visual appearance as you like, in my case I use big icons and have disabled both Show Title, which would show the title Quick Launch on that toolbar, and then disable Show Text, which would show the name of each program in Quick Launch. To change these settings, right click an empty spot in Quick Launch to open context menu. Notice that taskbar must be unlocked to open Quick Launch context menu:

This image shows better what those options Show title and Show Text would do:

That's it. Looks good, is very practical and makes opening applications and controlling what is open really easy.
