Expanding windows in taskbar

Hello, I'm trying to figure out how to set my new desktop computer to extend open windows in taskbar, while leaving my pinned programs in a smaller box; but I can't find any settings for it. Could somebody please help me? The left image is what I have; the one on the right is what I'm trying to achieve. Thank you for any information provided.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Use this tutorial Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable and change it to Never Combine that should give you what you want.
