Disable Taskbar Button Grouping

Hi,

How exactly do you disable taskbar grouping? Here is what I mean:



I hate this! I know that the program 7+ Taskbar Tweaker can disable this, but what I want is to know how itís done so that I donít need to have the program running at all times. Is it a registry tweak?

Hi, A Guy,

That is not the kind of grouping I was talking about. Sorry, for some reason, the image I attached disappeared. Iíll try to post it again:

See how the Firefox buttons are glued together like conjoined twins? This is annoying because I canít sort them individually, and I am a process minimalist.

Ahhh, now I see, I use Always combine myself. I tried never combine to see what you see. They drag to another position together as well. I believe you can have two different FF profiles and they will not stick together like that, but I cannot confirm (Opera user ). Someone else may have some ideas.
