How to open multiple folders in a usual way?

Hello, is there a way to make opening folders as before, without stacking them in one pile? To make it clear I dont want to navigate via thumbnail preview in a taskbar between the 2-3 folders.

I couldnt find anywhere the solution.

thanks

Hello Pimp, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I believe you are referring to taskbar grouping. You can use the tutorial below to turn off grouping by selecting the Never combine option.

Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn
