superbar can I turn off taskbar grouping?

is it possible to stop grouping of app windows together on taskbar.

eg.

IE1 explorer IE2 firefox IE3 and so on, so in this example 3 different IE windows seperated with other apps. Currently if I have multiple windows of an app they are forced together on the taskbar.

Also is it possible to use the mode with no text but not combine the buttons.

Hello Chrysalis,

Yes, you can turn off taskbar grouping if you would like to. You can select how you want them in the tutorial below.

sorry I think misunderstood my apologies. The guide they are still grouped in the sense that all the icons for the same app are next to each other. In your guide you can clearly see the 3 notepad buttons on the taskbar linked with each other.

On XP the buttons appear in the order you start the apps, in windows 7 it is the same with the exception that if the app is already launched then the new process is put next to the running one on the taskbar.

Oh, I see. Yes I misunderstood you. No, it will automatically keep the multiple open windows buttons for the same program next to each other. You can manually drag the buttons or pinned items in any order you like though.
